Clare Israel

Clare joined David Higham in 2016 with a seven-year background in Brand Management for television programmes in such diverse and interesting areas as commercial rights, creative product development, stage show adaptations, TV tie-in publishing and marketing. She is excited to bring this experience to David Higham where she can apply it to some of the wonderful authors and script writers she now represents (and hopes to work with in the future!).

Clare is also building her own list of scriptwriters. She is looking for diverse, evocative voices with high-quality characterisation and storytelling.

For submissions to Clare please provide a full writing CV including dated credits across Stage, TV, Film and Radio, your recommendation and a brief synopsis of the project you hope to submit.


Clare’s advice for new writers

You may well have a brilliant script but as you can imagine competition is fierce and it is unfortunately very difficult to get work as a scriptwriter or secure an agent without having advanced your writing career independently. This could be through competitions or by building relationships with industry professionals in production and development who can provide you with a recommendation. I would therefore encourage you to make headway independently before contacting an agent.
