We are a boutique agency and can quickly become overwhelmed by submissions. We are also the only agency who specializes in meeting the very exacting needs of the previously-published author. For both these reasons, we are probably not the best initial agency for novice writers to approach.
We do, however have a couple of useful suggestions for you if you are a new writer.

Join Litopia

Redhammer has supported the net’s oldest community for writers, Litopia Writers’ Colony, from its beginning.
Litopia Writers ColonyWord palace, talking-shop and literary sweat-shop, Litopia is home to many successful writers. It is a place where friendships are forged and excellence in writing is developed. Radio Litopia is just one aspect of Litopia’s continual engagement with new media. Litopia welcomes all writers who take their craft seriously, and it’s a great way to network with publishing professionals.

Most of the submissions agents see are simply not ready to be shown.  Only by joining a critiquing group such as Litopia will you know, for certain, that your work is of sufficient standard to be submitted.
