DHH Literary Agency is hosting a virtual event enabling aspiring authors to pitch their work direct to its team.
With the pandemic stopping agents from going on the road as in previous years, the agency is opening up its pitching sessions on 4th December. They will be held via a mutually agreeable online video platform.
Founder David Headley said: “In the past, we have had the most tremendous response to our pitching sessions, and we are counting on this time being no different, despite not being able to meet face-to-face. More than ever, we’re in need of good stories to make us forget about the current state of affairs, so we welcome the chance to have authors send – and perhaps pitch – their work to us.
“It really is a highlight of the DHH calendar, and we certainly weren’t going to let Covid-19 change that. The agents cannot wait to start reading.”
Interested authors should submit a one-page synopsis of their novel, and no more than the first 5,000 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. Full details on how to apply can be found on the agency website.
