Laura Longrigg

Laura worked as an editor, mainly in the genre of popular fiction, for HarperCollins, Heinemann and Penguin. She became an agent in 1994, working first with Jennifer Kavanagh and joined MBA just before the millennium.   Her clients’ work covers the whole fiction spectrum, from genre, including romantic comedy and saga, through crime and thrillers, to ‘reading group’ and literary writing.  She also agents some non fiction, but would not be the right agent for science fiction, children’s, poetry or illustrated books.   She founded and administered the Harry Bowling prize for unpublished fiction for many years, and her clients have appeared on the Booker shortlist among many other prestigious prizes, Sunday Times bestseller lists and been made into TV, film and radio.  She works closely with the foreign rights team at MBA and attends the major international Book Fairs.
