The 2011 Festival of Writing â€œbrings together a host of literary agents, mainstream and independent publishers, bestselling authors, frighteningly insightful book doctors and much more besides. Because you will be staying on campus, you’ll have countless opportunities to talk one on one with these people: make contacts, ask questions, share a glass of wine and network.
Our hope is that you’ll learn masses about how to write better, what kind of books the industry is looking for, and how best to approach agents and publishers. We also hope that you’ll have fun, make friends and leave the event buzzing with a sense of possibility.â€
The event takes place in York over the weekend 25-27 March.
