Marina De Pass

  Full details Marina joined The Soho Agency in 2016, after working for several years in the editorial departments of Little, Brown and HarperCollins. She adores fiction and is building a list of upmarket commercial, reading group and accessible literary fiction – and is actively looking to take on clients in this area.  She is looking for strong hooks, compelling writing and unforgettable characters. Among other things, she is drawn to books that feature: mysteries; heatwaves and/or raging storms; plot twists; hotels; secrets simmering under the surface; dramatic landscapes, a vivid sense of place; an unusual structure; characters who are not what they seem; cults; against-the-odds survival; dry humour; a light dusting of myths and folklore; chemistry that leaps off the page; love triangles, family tensions, heady affairs and forbidden romances – relationships under pressure, essentially. Marina reads across all genres in adult fiction, except for sci-fi, and she is most

Peggy Ramasy Foundations

  Full details  Peggy Ramsay was one of the best-known play agents in the United Kingdom during the second half of the Twentieth Century.  When she died in 1991 her estate was left for charitable purposes to help writers and writing for the stage.  The Peggy Ramsay Foundation was established in pursuance of this objective.   The Peggy Ramsay Foundation seeks to perpetuate Peggy Ramsay’s ideals, by directly helping dramatists at very different stages of experience in ways which we are determined to keep as quick and unbureaucratic as possible.  

The Rumpus

 Full details  At The Rumpus , we know how easy it is to find pop culture on the internet, so we’re here to give you something more challenging, to show you how beautiful things are when you step off the beaten path. The Rumpus is a place where people come to be themselves through their writing, to tell their stories or speak their minds in the most artful and authentic way they know how. We strive to be a platform for marginalized voices and writing that might not find a home elsewhere, and to lift up new voices alongside those of more established writers we love. We work to shine a light on stories that build bridges, tear down walls, and speak truth to power. The Rumpus launched in 2009. In January 2017, The Rumpus was purchased by Marisa Siegel, who had previously served as Managing Editor from 2014–2017. In January 2022, Alyson Sinclair became the new owner and publisher, Alysia Li-Ying Sawchyn is the Editor-in-Chief, and Marisa Siegel continues at The Rumpus as
