About the Tutor

Silé Edwards, Literary Agent at Mushens Entertainment

After graduating, Silé began her career in publishing at the Publishers Association, supporting their campaigns and communication functions. She then moved to Curtis Brown as an assistant in the Book Department, where she supported deals for an extensive and eclectic list of clients. She now represents a dynamic list, with an emphasis on non-fiction. Her clients include Love Island’s Yewande BialaKuchenga, writer-activists Natalie and Naomi Evans, the co-founders of EverydayRacism, architect and TV presenter Laura Jane Clark, birthing coach Illiyin Morrison and viral poet Della Hicks-Wilson. She was named a Trailblazer by London Book Fair in 2020 and is also a trustee for award-winning mentoring charity Arts Emergency. In 2021, Silé joined forces with Avon to launch the Avon x Mushens Entertainment Prize, with the aim to find a new commercial writer of colour. The winner received a two-book deal with the HarperCollins division, a grant to support their writing career, and representation from Mushens Entertainment.
