HarperSport seeks new authors

Do have an idea for a sports book burning within you?

HarperSport is a division of HarperCollins Publishers, the UK’s only large publishing house with a dedicated sports imprint, with a list that includes sports stars such as Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, John Terry and Lewis Hamilton. They are eager to hear from any sports journalists with ideas for books.

There is no need to spend hours drafting out an extensive proposal – if you have an idea, email it through and the team at HarperSport will discuss with you whether they think you have a hit on your hands.

If you have a bright, original idea for a sports book, if you have great contacts, have heard a fascinating tale or think that you have a particular area of knowledge that could form the basis of a really good sports book, contact either Jonathan Taylor or Tom Whiting at HarperSport now, at or
