    Hi Q. If you've made everything up as you go along then that is fiction. But if you are writing from life experience then it's non-fiction. It all depends on where the story comes from. If you add humour into the mix that is probably your genre. I can agree with Edward that you need to look in the W&A book for an agent or click on 'Editorial Services' on the information bar at the top of this site. Hope this helps.

    Here is a new nutter here; having just seen the question the answer came immediately, consider the fact that when God made man she was only joking !

    Then log on to the damned youtube and locate the lectric light orchestra playing Hold On Tight To Your Dreams !

    Sorry, just could not resist it . . . .

    I can only suggested you do the same as I do in a similar situation, consult the most recent W&A Yearbook (2019). I know it takes time, but it is accurate material (well as accurate as eight months out of date can be).

    Agents list what they will and will not accept, I find it a good starting point. The listings should also answer your comment about fiction or non-fiction.

    Dear Edward.
    ,thankyou for your reply. I appreciate that you took the time to to give me a detailed answer.

    May I ask you, since I don't have an agent, should I approach a fiction or non-fiction agent? I ask this because of the submission letter having to be laid out in a different way for each.
    Thankyou in advance.
