The NW has secured eight one-to-one manuscript reviews via Skype (or telephone if Skype is not an option for you) with Alice Williams.


Alice Williams has been representing children’s book writers and illustrators at David Higham Associates since 2008 and is particularly keen to consider fresh, funny, inspiring middle-grade and young fiction, as well as children’s non-fiction ideas and picture book texts. She will be leaving David Higham this week to set up her own agency, Alice Williams Literary. This is a great opportunity to show your work to her at the start of her new venture.

Practicalities: You should send a synopsis and the first three chapters of your MG or Younger fiction, or one or two picture book texts in hard copy to an address that will be made available once you have booked your ticket. You must include a cover note detailing your phone number, email address and Skype name. Please state if Skype is not your preferred form of communication. This should aim to arrive by Monday July 8th. If there is a problem with this timing, please email

You should make yourself available on Sunday 22nd July from 2pm until 5pm. We will issue a running order to give you a rough idea of when you will need to be ready to take the Skype call. Each one-to-one session will run for approximately 15 minutes.
