Hear from our authors about working with PFD.
We read every submission that we receive, and we aim to get back to authors within eight weeks. We receive a high volume of submissions, so unfortunately we’re not able to acknowledge receipt, nor always able to offer detailed feedback.
You can submit directly via email to one of our agents, and you can find out about their interests and individual submission guidelines here. Please only submit to one agent. Please either email them or their assistant directly.
Please note we do not accept submissions via hard copy.
Please send us the first three chapters (or around fifty pages) of your novel, as well as a full synopsis and a covering letter, with a brief CV of your writing career, if appropriate. For non-fiction projects, please send a detailed proposal, alongside the covering letter and CV.
Unfortunately we do not currently accept unsolicited material from scriptwriters, playwrights or directors. Any unsolicited pitches, outlines, showreels or scripts will be returned unread if a stamped addressed envelope has been enclosed, otherwise they will be recycled. If you are referred to one of the agents here by a producer, development executive or course tutor then you should email the agent directly, attaching a CV and giving details of who has referred you. Please note that we are not able to offer representation to writers or directors based outside Europe.
Our Broadcast department accepts submissions from both aspiring and established broadcasters. In particular we are looking for fresh, inspiring presenters with well-developed ideas, digital and social talent with quirky specialisms, and industry professionals at the top of their respective fields.
