Literary agent Sophie Scard joins The Bournemouth Writing Prize judging panel

We are delighted to welcome United Agents’ literary agent Sophie Scard to the judging panel of this year’s Bournemouth Writing Prize.

Sophie, whose clients include Tessa Hadley, Susannah Dickey and Chris Brookmyre, is no stranger to writing competitions as she has judged the White Review Short Story Prize three times, and co-runs the Pat Kavanagh Prize.

“I am interested in seeing excellent writing of all types,” Sophie told us, before adding that she is actively looking for new clients at the moment. That new client could be YOU, if your short story catches her eye – so don’t miss the January 25th deadline for entering The Bournemouth Writing Prize!

Details on how to enter can be found on our Competitions page, here. Good luck!
