Profile Summary

Philippa completed an MA in publishing in 2012. Her experience has included some of the top names in the UK agenting business, such as Peters, Fraser & Dunlop, Graham Maw Christie, Watson, Little Ltd, and Sheil Land Associates. In 2014, Philippa joined David Godwin Associates (DGA) as an assistant literary agent. She does not currently take on clients of her own, working with David Godwin and Kirsty McLachlan on their lists. 

DGA considers itself a small agency but they have an impressive roster of clients covering a wide range of genres and styles. The agency deals with fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and TV/film scripts. 

It is worth keeping an eye on Philippa's career as it progresses, as it might not be too long before she is looking to build a list of her own.
