Carole Blake Open Doors Project

Applications are now open for the Carole Blake Open Doors Project – a two-week, all-expenses-paid work shadowing scheme at Blake Friedmann literary agency for candidates from backgrounds that are under-represented in publishing. They are keen to broaden their net as widely as possible to find candidates who might not be aware of what a career in publishing entails.

The work shadowing scheme includes funding for travel, a weekly stipend and up to twelve nights’ accommodation in London. The programme, which will run twice a year, will include close mentorship with Blake Friedmann’s book agents, the opportunity to attend selected meetings with editors and authors, and the chance to be involved in every aspect of day-to-day life as an agent. It is intended that candidates will come away from the project with varied knowledge of working for a leading literary agency, the beginnings of new and essential relationships in the publishing industry, and some excellent experience to include on their CVs.

The deadline for applications is 6th May.
