Kate Nash

Kate started her working life in market research before moving into marketing and public relations where she became head of marketing and communications for a dot com before becoming co-director of an innovative marketing and publicity company that worked for a number of UK publishers, authors and book prizes.

Kate understands what it’s like being an author; she’s had a number of her own novels published. The stress of climbing the slushpile led her to found the UK’s leading conference for aspiring novelists with Writers’ Workshop: the York Festival of Writing. She founded the Kate Nash Literary Agency in January 2009.
