If you’re looking for help and advice to get a screenwriting agent in the UK, you’ve come to the right place!

If you’re not familiar with the film, television and screenwriting industry, it can feel impossible to navigate and build connections and relationships with those ‘inside’ it.  So we’re here to help you learn about how the industry works, get your work read by the right people and move your screenwriting career forward.

First, if you haven’t yet read How To Get A Screenwriting Agent it’s well worth checking out for some great advice.

Remember that in the UK literary agents both manage a writer’s career and negotiate contracts for them. In the US this role is divided into two distinct roles of Manager (who manages your career) and Agent (who does the deals). So in the US, it’s advisable for new writers to look first for a Manager, rather than Agent.

The literary agencies we’ve listed aren’t necessarily recommendations so, as always, please be sure to do your own research before submitting your work to anyone. Submission policies vary among the agencies, with some more open to approaches than others, so please check out their websites for further information about how to submit to them.
