Join us as we launch the Northern Writers' Awards 2020 with advice for new and aspiring writers looking for publication opportunities

About this Event

Hosted by New Writing North in partnership with The Literary Consultancy (TLC); with thanks to Blackpool Library Service for their support

New Writing North and The Literary Consultancy (TLC) are delighted to be taking the Northern Writers’ Awards to Blackpool for this year’s North West Roadshow.

The Roadshow will include sessions on the author-agent relationship, finding outlets for new work and advice for writers considering applying for the Northern Writers’ Awards and other opportunities.

Confirmed speakers include the novelist Sarah Butler, Joe Sedgwick from TLC, Northern Writers' Awards winners Yvonne Battle-Felton, Emma Hill and Okechukwu Nzelu, and Amy Fitzgerald from the Blair Partnership literary agency.

Tea and coffee will be provided.

Tickets cost £5. A limited number of free tickets are available to people for whom this is prohibitive. Please contact Grace Keane grace@newwritingnorth.com

One-to-ones with a publishing professional

A limited number of one-to-one sessions are available to request. If you’re interested in a advisory chat with a publishing professional, please complete the form here. You must have booked for the event to be allocated a one-to-one session. On the form, you will be asked to provide:

  • A short synopsis of the writing project you’re working on
  • A 500 word extract, ideally from the beginning of the manuscript

We will be closing the form on Monday 6 January and will allocate one-to-one sessions by Friday 10 January. If more one-to-ones are requested than there are spaces available, we will try to match the most appropriate work to the expertise of the publishing professionals available.

The Northern Writers' Awards are produced by New Writing North with support from Northumbria University, Arts Council England and a range of industry partners. The awards support work-in-progress by writers based in the North of England.
