Profile Summary

Peter Knight is a retired literary agent. He is included in our database for information only, being the founder and director of Knight Features agency.
In 1985, Peter set up what was then known as the Peter Knight Agency. He spent 30 years running The Express Newspapers Syndication Department before striking out on his own. His years at the top meant Peter was very well connected as well as being highly respected by his peers. Leaving the newspaper business, he found many cartoonists wanted him to represent their interests.
Since then, Knight Features has built a solid reputation as both a literary agency and content distributors (working with syndication, licensing, and digital rights). Since starting out mostly representing cartoonists and illustrators, the business has since branched out to represent authors of both fiction and non-fiction. Areas of interest to the agency include general fiction, biographies and autobiographies, body mind and spirit, business and management, motorsports, history, graphic novels, cartoons, humour, and puzzles.
If you wish to approach Knight Features for representation for your book, please send this through to Sam Ferris, who looks after all books submissions. You may submit either digitally or by post.
