How We Can Help
Not every book will make it into print straightaway, or necessarily through the route the writer originally imagined. Inkwell’s aim is to help every writer achieve their dream as closely as possible and our extensive industry experience enables us to give you the best advice.
Inkwell work with agents and publishers in Ireland and the UK to spot new talent, and while we cannot guarantee to get your work into print, if we see a market for it we will try and place it for you.
Inkwell have placed authors with agents such as Simon Trewin of WME (London), Marianne Gunn O’Connor and Paul Feldstein, and multiple authors with Ger Nichols of The Book Bureau and Sallyanne Sweeney of Watson Little (London). We also work closely with publishers such as Penguin Ireland, Hachette Ireland, Poolbeg, New Island, The History Press and The O’Brien Press to place authors directly where appropriate.
This is a free, discretionary service, and is not included in your fee for any other Inkwell service. We closely monitor all submissions to our editors, readers and through our manuscript assessment service to assist authors whose work is ready for submission.
Vanessa O’Loughlin at Inkwell also acts as a literary agent for selected clients.
