Whitney Davis is the founder of Whitney Davis Literary, a boutique literary consultancy offering management for screenwriters and editorial/career consulting services for writers at large.
After receiving her BA in Literature and Creative Writing, Whitney moved to Los Angeles where she started out as a TV writer, getting signed to the William Morris Agency (now WME) at the age of 26. During the writers strike, Whitney began her career as a freelance script consultant and developmental story editor for aspiring screenwriters and novelists. Over the past 10 years, Whitney has worked with award winning novelists and optioned/produced screenwriters.
In 2015, after being nudged by many of her existing clients, Whitney started her own literary management firm for screenwriters and continues her work with novelists and screenwriters as a developmental story editor and publishing consultant.
In the screenwriting world, she moves best in the TV space, and her clients have pitched their scripts to several studios that include HBO, FX, Netflix and Hallmark to name a few. On the novel writing side, her clients have landed literary agents and secured book deals with Harper Collins, Scholastic and more.
Whitney is a sought after panelist and conference speaker, participating at events all over the country. In the last year, she has spoken at The Great American Pitchfest, the Greater Los Angeles Writers Conference, The Writer’s Digest Novel Writing Conference, The Genre LA Conference, and has paneled at events such as the AWP’s 50th Anniversary Conference in Washington D.C, the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival and was selected as a guest of honor for an International Screenwriting Association event this past summer. You can find her at several more events in 2017.
She currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Dallas, where she is on faculty at Writing Workshops Dallas.
Whitney has a passion for storytelling and loves encouraging writers to fulfill their dreams. You can find her across all social media platforms at @wdavisliterary and on the web at www.whitneydavisliterary.com.
