DHA New Writers’ Open Week in January 2021

David Higham Associates: a literary agency based in central London will be running an online Open Week to support under-represented writers across the world.

“We are thrilled to be inviting all applicants to a series of events this October aiming to demystify the industry, including advice on writing submission letters, a look at the role of the agent, as well as the work of translation and film & TV rights teams. Twenty writers will then be selected to attend our DHA New Writers’ Open Week in January 2021, which will feature further exclusive talks from agents, authors and editors, and include an in-depth 1-1 feedback session on their submitted work with a DHA agent.

This open day will be an excellent opportunity for budding authors from under-represented backgrounds (LGBTQ+ writers, writers of colour, writers from working-class backgrounds, writers from ethnic, cultural and religious minorities and writers with a disability) to find out more about the industry and have their material looked at by a leading literary agent.”
