Dotti Irving writes the diary column in the New Statesman
We are delighted to see Dotti writing about her move to becoming an agent in the diary column of the New Statesman this week.
In it she writes, "Last year I switched careers. I’m now working as a cultural consultant and literary agent, focusing on narrative non-fiction. I know the world of publishing, but it’s great to see it through a different lens; a bit daunting at times, perhaps, but you’d expect that with a whole new career. One thing I hadn’t reckoned on was the deluge of emails from strangers; writers in search of an agent, who send me messages ranging from the heartbreaking to the nakedly deranged and, occasionally, the inspired."
