Literary consultancies:

There are a number of literary consultancies who can offer advice and guidance on your writing and increase your chances of finding representation. We have listed some here, but there are many more and we recommend you do the research to find the right one for you. Note that consultancies charge fees and any agreement between an author and consultancy is taken at the author’s sole discretion

A note about internships: we do take on interns from time to time, but currently do not have any availability. We will update this section as and when that changes.
