All
In this full day workshop with literary agent Alex Adsett you get a behind the scenes look at the publishing industry – the different publishing departments and where a literary agent sits in the process, what an agent can do for you, and when you don’t need one, copyright essentials, sneaky tricks and traps of publishing contracts, publishing scams to watch out for, the different ways to pitch to publishers and agents (and what not to do), and an opportunity to try out a live pitch on the day.

(The pitches will be chosen at random, with a live 3 min pitch to the room, where the pitch (not the manuscript) is then critiqued by Alex). 

This workshop will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.

 

You will learn:

  • the different publishing departments and where a literary agent sits in the process

  • what an agent can do for you, and when you don’t need one

  • sneaky tricks and traps of publishing contracts
