How we work
The Good Literary Agency operates slightly differently to other agencies. Rather than choosing to submit to a specific agent we ask authors to make a general submission which we evaluate as a team before deciding whether to offer representation. We also place a lot of emphasis on development work for authors who we believe are talented but whose manuscripts could benefit from some additional editing before submitting to publishers.
