Wednesday May 29th, at Blackwell’s Bookshop, 48-51 Broad Street, Oxford, from 7-9pm.
Literary agent Caroline Wood will talk about her life as an agent and answer all your questions about what agents want and how to get an agent.
Caroline Wood is a leading literary agent and director at Felicity Bryan Associates, an independent literary agency based in Oxford.
Caroline represents literary fiction and well written commercial fiction, including crime and thrillers. She is actively looking for original, compelling literary debuts, and loves books that transport her to a different time or place, books that have a secret or mystery at the heart of them, books about family and relationships, books that are psychologically complex and emotionally involving, always beautifully written and with a distinctive voice. She greatly enjoys the editing process and work closely with her authors to make their books the best they can be. In non-fiction, she represent primarily memoirs. She also sells book to film/TV rights for a number of her authors.
I started The Oxford Editors in 2007 to help writers at every stage and in every genre. We have a strong academic tradition as well as working with writers of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We also help children's writers, playwrights, screen writers and business writers.
We offer a wide set of services for writers from mentoring, manuscript assessment, copy editing, proof reading, ghost writing, query letter writing, literary agent search, and much more. We will write your blog for you, perfect that speech or help you self-publish that book. If you write, our team of published authors, publishing industry experts and academics can help you.
I am an award-winning writer and editor working on academic, non-fiction and fiction manuscripts. I regularly work with fiction and children’s writers as well as doctoral students. I have also edited books and papers for academics throughout the world, and for many authors at publishers including Oxford University Press, Harvard University Press and Yale University Press. I have also guided many writers of fiction to publishing success. I am an author, ghost writer and an international journalist. After the publication of my book, Unveiled: Love and Death Among the Ayatollahs, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei condemned me as ‘a notorious man-hater’ for the book’s strong attack on the violation of women’s rights in Iran.
I also work with writers as a mentor and I have guided authors of fiction, non-fiction and academic works. My latest book, a crime thriller, will be published soon.
I worked for many years at The Financial Times, The Independent and The Guardian and has been a regular contributor to The Economist. I have also written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The South China Morning Post and many other newspapers and magazines worldwide. I have appeared on the BBC – including Radio 4’s the Today programme and on Newsnight.
I have edited several major academic studies, and also edited books by professors at Oxford and Harvard – among others. As well as writing fiction for adults and children. I have also written several screenplays.

Great! I’ll be there even though I am not now looking for an agent. Thanks for organising this, Cherry👍
Hi Cherry, sounds great, I’d love to be there. Do I need to book a place? Gillx
Dear Gill, no need to book, just turn up. x
I am somewhat angry with myself for missing this! It sounds to have been very useful. If you could summarise any of her points, I would be most grateful, but realize you may have better things to do!
