Honorary doctorate for Felicity Bryan

The literary agent, Felicity Bryan, was awarded an honorary doctorate by Oxford Brookes University at a ceremony last week. She started her agency over twenty years ago and represents a range of famous writers including Karen Armstrong, Penelope Hobhouse, and Rosamunde Pilcher. Through a recent management buy-out two fellow directors now share ownership of the business.

Felicity Bryan set up the Laurence Stern Fellowship, which enables a young British journalist each year to spend three months working at the Washington Post.  Since 1980 alumni of the programme have included James Naughtie and David Leigh.

She is a member of the Industry Advisory Board for the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies and has just ended her term on the Court of Oxford Brookes, a voluntary body which exists to support the university in its future development and to make connections within the wider community.
