Sheil Land Associates is a long-established literary, theatrical and film agency dating back to 1962.  We have eleven staff including six agents and their assistants, all of whom are strongly supported by friendly and experienced finance and administrative staff, making us one of the top five literary agencies in the UK.


​Although we have a great list of clients and negotiate large deals, we believe in being a relatively low-key agency.  Our clients are the stars, and we are the advisors, quietly and proficiently guiding, negotiating and managing their interests. 


We welcome approaches from new clients of all backgrounds, whether they have been published already or are first time writers. 

We look for literary fiction, commercial fiction and non-fiction in the categories below. We also represent celebrities and journalists with a story to tell.



  • book club fiction

  • children's and YA

  • contemporary fiction

  • commercial women's fiction

  • crime/mystery/thrillers

  • fantasy

  • genre romance of every kind

  • historical

  • horror/ghost stories

  • literary fiction

  • sagas

  • science fiction


  • biography/memoir

  • cookery

  • gardening

  • gift books/humour

  • history/military history

  • lifestyle

  • mind-body-spirit/self-improvement

  • politics

  • popular science

  • psychology

  • travel

We represent playwrights, film and TV writers (including animation and children’s), documentary makers and directors, radio and TV presenters.  A number of them also write successful books.
