Join us at our LWC LIVE MONTHLY ONLINE EVENT. The live Zoom events are a friendly chat with a leading literary agent and Jacq Burns.

SEPTEMBER 26 at 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Hannah Sheppard, Hannah Sheppard Literary Agency

Hannah Sheppard loves stories. She wants to make sure more fantastic stories from as diverse a group of authors as possible make it onto bookshop shelves.

She worked in-house in editorial for a decade (at Pan Macmillan and Headline Publishing Group) which gives her valuable insight into the workings of a publishing house and an ability to explain the industry and the publishing process from both sides of the business.

She joined the DHH Literary Agency in 2013 when she realised the more senior she got in-house, the less she got to do the bits of her job she really loves – working directly with authors to develop their ideas for commercial success.

In 2023 Hannah launched HS-LA with the aim of being part of the change that publishing so desperately needs.
