Creative Writing Fair, Manchester, 2 Nov

Comma Creative Writing Graduates Fair

If this fair is anything like last year’s, it will be a hectic whirl of getting published events and one-to-ones with agents and editors. I’ll be leading a workshop on ‘How to Write a Pitch Letter’ at 3.30. This one-hour talk, which includes some writing exercises, aims to help you identify which aspects of your novel to mention in your pitch letter/email to attract an agent’s or editor’s attention. I will also talk about how much to say about yourself and how to structure your pitch. I have been leading workshops on this topic for over ten years, and am currently running a regular ‘pitch surgery’ on the members’ area of the Mslexia website.

I’ll be at the Mslexia stall for the rest of the day but if you are interested in a specific one-to-one about your writing, I believe the organisers are booking some individual sessions for earlier in the afternoon.
