Event Details

Writing a novel is tough, but the labours of getting it into print are tougher still. You’ll need to find the right agent, and write a pitch seductive enough to make your work stand out from thousands of other submissions. And that’s just the start.

With seminars and workshops from experts including publisher Michal Shavit, literary agent Peter Straus, industry expert Danuta Kean, crime novelist Dreda Mitchell, agent Diana Beaumont plus a keynote talk from Observer writer and novelist Elizabeth Day, this weekend course will give you a complete picture of who wants what in the publishing marketplace. You'll also gain practical advice on how to find – and impress – your agent, alongside tips on writing trends, self-editing and much more. You'll leave the course knowing how to draft the crucial pitch letter for your novel, and with the all-important "How" answered.

Location: The Guardian, 90 York Way, King's Cross, London N1 9GU
