Literary Agents seek student novelists

The Christopher Little Literary Agency (CLLA) – famous for representing JK Rowling, amongst others – is offering an annual prize, through Exeter College, for student novelists at Oxford University.

The prize, worth £1,500 cash, is to be awarded annually for the best synopsis and opening three chapters of a novel by an Oxford student. It is open to graduates and undergraduates on any full time course of the collegiate University, provided they are not already represented by an agent.

In addition to the prize on offer, both the winner and the runners-up – to be chosen by the Agency – may be offered the possibility of representation by CLLA. The Agency deals with over 175 publishers in over 100 countries world-wide, so this is a wonderful opportunity for budding novelists in the University, and a very exciting collaboration for Exeter.
