Head Editor & Founder
Sara discovered a talent for editing following her involvement in a number of writers’ workshops. After being asked to read more and more novels she was eventually offered a fee and in 2015 founded Bluepencilagency. Prior to this she worked as an Interiors journalist for magazines and newspapers. She has also written short stories that have been published, recorded for radio and shortlisted. Sara writes women’s commercial fiction under her pen name, Sara James and her first novel, Mothering Sundays, will be published by Orion in February 2021. She studied scriptwriting, completed an MA in creative writing and a novel writing course at Curtis Brown Creative, all of which helped her to understand the fragile psyche of the writer and the workings of the publishing industry. Sara is represented by Rowan Lawton.
