Author Representation & Book Development

The Writers’ Practice is a boutique literary agency and editorial consultancy. We are a small team of published authors and scriptwriters, editors and teachers of creative writing. Collaboration is the key to the practice’s philosophy, where a pooling of expertise is designed to help shape our writers’ ideas and build their brands. We work with our writers from pitch to publication.

Our platform is for writers to break new ground, and get noticed.
