Christine Green Authors’ Agent was founded in 1984 by Christine Green. Christine is judging the Writing Awards and wants to find a writer to represent and publish.
Christine Green Authors' Agent has been representing writers in Britain and around the world for three decades.
Amongst other authors, Christine Green represents the award-winning and bestselling, Maeve Binchy, who sadly passed away in Dublin in 2012 leaving behind a huge legacy of bestselling books, many of which became films and television series.
They are a small and distinctive literary agency, proud to represent a diverse range of fiction writers with literary and commercial appeal. Although their offices are in London, they work with co-agents across the world, and they are members of the Association of Authors' Agents.
As a small agency, they are careful only to take on clients they like and whose work they admire. They like to form close working relationships with their authors.
As what is sometimes called a "boutique" agency their stock-in-trade is their hands-on editorial approach, for which they are particularly known in the industry. Not all authors need extensive editorial input but those who do will not find it available everywhere: the time and expense of editorial support is a shrinking resource in today's publishing world.
Christine Green Authors’ Agent aims to help authors get their manuscripts into the very best possible shape before putting them in front of publishers, and that means that both the agents and the writers they represent are taken seriously.
They are always on the lookout for people with stories to tell and exciting ways of telling them.
Christine Green started her career in publishing with Faber & Faber, later joining the John Johnson Agency. She started Christine Green Authors' Agent in 1984 with a very small list of clients. This suited her well as it meant she was able to work personally with each author and pay close attention to each new draft.
Luckily, but perhaps unsurprisingly, this small list was home to writers who soon became prize-winning, best-selling authors, and this has allowed her agency to remain a small, editorially focused agency. They enjoy close working relationships with all of their clients and always have time to talk.
