The Luithlen Agency has been overseeing high quality children's fiction for over twenty years. Our authors have won every major children's fiction award in the UK.
Jennifer Luithlen founded the agency in 1986 after 22 years at Hodder and Stoughton Children's Books. Penny joined the Agency in 1993 after graduating from Manchester University and has been Co-Agent since 1999. We work together in our offices in Leicester.
We pride ourselves on the efficient and friendly service we are able to give by being a small independent literary agency. Our Agency specialises in Children's fiction from Early Readers through to Young Adult and we are passionate about providing page-turning books that children want to read, talk about and pass on to their friends.
We have excellent connections with UK publishing houses and our reputation for selling translation rights is well-known.
