    Okay, thankyou for your replies Edward and Elsie. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

    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 I know it takes time, but it is accurate material (well as accurate as eight months out of date can be).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.
