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 are Ireland’s leading literary talent scouts and work with agents and publishers in Ireland and the UK to spot new authors. While we cannot guarantee to get your work into print, if we see a market for it we will do our best to place it for you.

This is discretionary service, and is not included in your fee for any other Inkwell service. We closely monitor all submissions to our editors, and readers, and through our manuscript assessment service to assist authors whose work is ready for submission.
If we submit your book to agents or publishers, there is no charge for this introduction. Should your book be successfully sold to a publishing house, we charge a discretionary one-off flat fee on your first book deal which is 5% of the initial Worldwide advance plus VAT, with no ongoing royalties. This is subject to agreement between the author and Inkwell at the outset.
When you are preparing to submit to publishers we recommend you join writing.ie as an Emerging Writer Member (only €35 per year) – this gives you a webpage to link to in your submissions, it demonstrates how serious you are about writing and it gives you exposure to the editors and agents who regularly visit the site.
