I have been rejected by them, does that count?

From what I have heard it's a solid agency.

I suggest you look at the list of authors on their site and see the quality, and which publishers said author's work has been sold too. You can cross check the author's work on the publishers' sites/amazon/in a book shop if you are so inclined,

Many thanks for the feedback.

They looked good to me when I explored their site but it's always nice to know if anyone has anything against the agency.

Queried J0 Williams0n earlier this month and got a full request the next day. Fingers crossed!

This thread hasn't had any movement forever - anyone (particularly clients) have any recent dealings with them? Thanks.

Girl Friday, what age is your book aimed at, just out of curiosity? I have a YA manuscript, and was wondering whether to query Williamson, Harwood, or Lockhart.

Their website says to send them "a brief outline"...I'm assuming that means a query letter? Or do they also want a synopsis?

Hi Satchan, it's an MG. I just sent a query, and, because they didn't specifically say not to, I pasted the first few pages in too. Good luck!

Queried: 22/05
Full request: 23/05
Nudged: 10/8
Nudged with offer: 29/8
Offered rep: 2/9

In the end I went with a different agency, but I both spoke to Jo on the phone and met her in person, and she was INCREDIBLY nice and enthusiastic - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an agent for YA or kidlit.

Hmm? Ah. Thread title's right, but not the Index. Will fix, thanks!

All but the landing page is gone on the website. Is this a fluke, or aren't they taking queries from unknowns anymore?
