Profile Summary

Shirley Stewart set up her eponymous agency in 1993.  Her company doesn’t have a website, and as far as we can tell, she doesn’t use social media.  Our research suggests that she specialises in literary fiction and general non-fiction. We know that she doesn’t accept poetry, plays, film scripts, science fiction, fantasy or children's books but outside of these categories, our genre selections for this agent are based on guesswork.  

She is listed as Catherine Dunne’s agent ('The Things We Know Now' was the Winner of the 2013 Giovanni Boccaccio International Prize for Fiction).  Beyond this, we have been able source very little information about Shirley or her clients.  We haven’t found a biography, photograph or even any details of her attendance at literary events. Given the date her agency was founded, we suspect that she already has a well-established list of authors and is not actively searching for new clients.  

However, our researchers have been in touch with Shirley to ask for further details about her list and we will add any new information that comes our way as soon as we can.  In the meantime, we would advise writers seeking representation to apply to one of the more active agents profiled on this site.
