"Enthralling . . . makes for a fascinating read." Canberra Times
Hindsight Literary Agency represents a growing list of Australian authors. As well as representing individuals with a proven track record, we love to identify and champion talented new and emerging writers of fiction and nonfiction. We continue to carefully select new clients – reading every proposal we receive, responding in a timely manner and endeavouring to provide useful feedback to all writers.
As a boutique, author-focussed agency, we are able to work closely with our authors to provide personalised and friendly support and guidance at every stage of the publishing process. We offer editorial advice to our writers, helping them hone and polish their projects for commercial success. Then, using our strong industry knowledge and networks, we present their work to publishers and negotiate to secure the best terms possible. Beyond this process, we aim to help develop our writers’ profiles, actively looking for opportunities to promote their work and to nurture further publishing projects.
We are currently accepting submissions in the following areas: fiction (literary and commercial), nonfiction (with the exception of academic and spirituality titles) and children’s fiction (picture books, middle-grade and young adult). Please note: we are currently NOT accepting any fantasy or sci-fi manuscripts – with the exception of those authors who have previously published at least one full-length book (any genre) with a traditional publisher, or who come by recommendation from another recognised industry source.
