UK Literary Agents For Popular Science

So, you’re well on your way to completing your book on popular science, and have a cracking book proposal that you can’t wait to share with agents. Well, we’re here to help! 


Popular science is one of the most well-loved non-fiction genres, thanks to its exploration of big scientific topics in accessible ways for the mass readership. The idea that anyone could pick up your book and finish it having a better understanding of the topic you explore is so important.  

Popular science literature can cover a variety of topics, from discussions of time, black holes, nature, psychology, the universe, climate change, analysis of data, medicine, and many many more. The breadth of possibility when it comes to popular science topics makes it an increasingly popular genre. They are made up of current and relevant topics that will interest the average reader and leave them with a new understanding when they finish the book. 

Authors of popular science and psychology are more popular than ever. Stephen Hawking, Oliver Sacks and Michio Kaku, to name a few.
