Want feedback on your manuscript?

Book a literary agent
one-to-one right here!

Obtaining a literary agent one-to-one is a rare and valuable thing. Fabulous feedback from an industry professional can alter the course of your writing. And on your journey to getting published all good advice is surely welcome. While events and festivals are great ways to engage with agents, however, some of us face restrictions. Cost, physical disabilities and logistical limitations may all hamper you enjoying the experience of a literary agent one-to-one.

So the face of literary agent one-to-ones is changing.

By teaming up with top literary agents, and using the magic of the internet, I AM in print provides a solution. Enter our online room from your own home and discuss your manuscript with some of the best in the business!

HOW IT WORKS

Booking your agent one-to-one appointment:

To meet the agent of your choice, follow these instructions carefully:

  • Make sure your manuscript is finished to the best of your ability. Do not book if your manuscript is incomplete.
  • Carry out an internet speed check on your laptop, desktop computer, tablet or phone.
    You can use this Broadband Test. Your download and upload speeds should both be above 2mbs.
  • Read the literary agent bios to decide your best genre fit.
  • Book your 15 minute appointment.
  • Prepare your submission in accordance with your chosen agent’s requirements.

Emailing your attachments:

  • Email your submission attachments in a word document to agent121@iaminprint.co.uk by the stated submission deadline.
  • State your agent’s name in the subject line of the email.
  • Attach three separate word documents: covering letter, synopsis, part of manuscript.
  • Add your name / 1-2-1 date / time to the header of all you send.

Preparation for your agent one-to-one:

Letting go of your precious manuscript when you’re on submission can be nerve-wracking and lengthy.

  • I AM in print will be in touch to run a quick connection test with you and familiarise you with the online meeting room in advance.
  • On the day of your one-to-one you can log into the private room fully prepared to meet your booked agent who will provide feedback on your material.

CHOOSE YOUR TIME SLOT



Hannah Sheppard is literary agent at the D H H Literary AgencyShe is seeking thrillers, crime, women’s concept led fiction including epic love stories, children’s fiction for ages 7 to 9, 9  to 11 and 12 +.

Hannah would love to see clear, compelling hooks, strong voices that pull you right in, uplit, great storytelling, and diversity in all senses (both cast and author).

Adult Fiction

1: Thrillers High concept, dark, pacy, suspenseful, twisty, hooky (what’s the pitch line that makes certain you HAVE to read your book?)
2: Women’s Fresh, concept led… funny
3: Women’s Epic love stories with a twist to the idea…maybe a speculative element (TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE) or something quirky about the structure (ONE DAY)
4: General/ Big family/friendship group stories that make you feel. Women’s Think THIS IS US, the latest series of COLD FEET, LIFE ITSELF (make her sob). What does it mean to be human, to love and to have misconceptions and flaws…
5: Crime. She loves a cold case…like ITVs UNFORGOTTEN. The psychology of the criminal who has lived for years thinking they’ve got away with something only for it to be exposed with the police slowly circling in…

Children’s Fiction

1: Age 7-9  Funny Series Ideas – clear hook, not school based
2: Age 9-11  Exciting stories where the world building is as rich as the magical plot (but with a contemporary feel, not a voice that feels overly authorial)
3: Age 9-11  Heart-lifting, emotional, but with humour to the voice
4: Age 12+Something funny. Maybe about sibling dynamics (actually, sibling dynamics could apply to 3 too)

Hannah would like you to submit one document to include your covering letter, a 1-2 page synopsis and the first 3 chapters of your completed manuscript.

(In addition to the paid sessions, Hannah is kindly offering one free session per month for low income/underrepresented writers. Please email agent121@iaminprint.co.uk to apply, outlining your case for this option which is offered at the discretion of I AM in print ).
