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 to write a pitch seductive enough to make your work stand out from thousands of other submissions. And that's just the start.

Literary agent Kerry Glencorse, crime novelist Dreda Say Mitchell, self-published success Catherine Ryan Howard and publishing expert Danuta Kean as well as Liesel Schwarz to tell you what it’s like to go from unpublished hopeful to a major three book deal are among a the industry insiders who will show you what it takes to go from pitch to publication.

During this weekend course you will receive practical advice on how to find – and impress – an agent, alongside tips on writing trends, networking, self-publishing and much more. You'll leave the course knowing how to draft the crucial pitch letter and write your synopsis, and with a clear understanding of how to get your book into print.
