David Higham reveals Open Week events

David Higham Agency has revealed the line-up of top agents taking part in its events ahead of its New Writers' Open Week for under-represented talent.

The organisation is running a series of online events in November, which are open to all writers applying for its January Open Week. The deadline for the week has also been extended until 26th October.

The event series, starting on 10th November, aims to demystify the publishing industry for new writers. In discussion with leading literary agents, applicants will hear about everything from the submissions process to pitching, publication and beyond. It includes sessions on submitting adult fiction with Nicola Chang and Jemima Forrester, along with a “pitch to publication” event featuring Lizzy Kremer and Jessica Wollard.

There will also be sessions about the role of the translation rights by Margaux Vialleron and Allison Cole and film and TV rights from Nicky Lund

Adult and children's fiction writers from under-represented backgrounds can apply to take part on the agency website
