Dorothy Sayers Departs From London Hotshop S. H. Benson

Hires, Wins & Business 269 Add to collection

The agency is said to have been “shocked” by the departure of one of its strongest copywriters

Dorothy Sayers Departs From London Hotshop S. H. Benson

This news comes after a slew of other departures in recent months.

The consensus from within the agency is that Sayers, responsible for some the agency’s most loved work, including the ‘GuinnessToucan’ and Coleman’s ‘The Mustard Club’, will now concentrate on writing herfirst novel.

This news is well-timed, since The Winston Fletcher Fiction Prize opens its doors to entries next month.

Sir Tim Waterston, one of the judges,commented, “History has shown us that some of the greatest writers in the world have been born outof advertising agencies…”

And went on to add, “Our aim with The Winston Fletcher Fiction Prize is to help encourage aspiring writers like Dorothy.”

Entries for the 2017 Fiction Prize are now officially open, and short stories or passages from longer novels will be accepted anywhere up to 4000 words. It is free to enter, there is a prize fund of £2000, and the closing date for entries is 31st August 2017.
