Welcome to David Higham Associates, one of the world’s leading literary agencies.
Established in 1935, we represent an outstanding range of writers of commercial and literary fiction and non-fiction, in all media and languages, and are the leading agency for children’s authors and illustrators.
Our Film, TV & Theatre department looks after talented writers originating and scripting material for stage, screen and new media, as well as selling screen and stage rights to the books we handle.
The agency’s longevity and track record speak for themselves. Please browse the pages of our website to find out more about what we do and the brilliant writers we work with.
We recognise that DHA is not fully representational and as a company are working together to change this. Read our statement about diversity here.
