Writers at Large!

This all-day event at Brighton’s award-winning Jubilee Library on Saturday 19 June 2010 will present the chance for aspiring/emerging writers to meet an exciting array of speakers and guests, including literary agents, publishing professionals and professional development guides - all aimed to help get their work out into the world.

Joining New Writing South on the day will be representatives from: THE LITERARY CONSULTANCY, THE WRITERS' GUILD, SALT PUBLISHING, RANDOM HOUSE, CURTIS BROWN LITERARY AND TALENT AGENCY, MBA LITERARY AGENTS and UNITED AGENTS.

Writers at Large! will provide a range of 50-minute sessions to help writers learn about effective marketing and networking strategies, how to get the most out of the web and social media, and a chance to learn about copyright law. The day will also offer writers 1:1 sessions with professionals, a session with top literary agents and how mentoring and manuscript reading can help their career.

As part of the day there will be an opportunity to network with other writers and to hear a keynote panel debate State of the Industry, where those within the publishing/bookselling world give us their thoughts as to what is happening in the publishing industry today, where it is heading and what authors should know about the business (and future) of publishing.

(and should you wish to learn how to write erotica, or how to produce publishable work under different names in a range of fiction genres, or what it takes to write a prize-winning short story you can - apparently - book a session with me!)
