Saturday, October 31, The Beacon, from 10am: Are you an aspiring writer? Have you written your novel but don’t know what to do with it and would value some professional advice? Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity!
Book a 10 minute slot to discuss your manuscript (first 1,000 words/ first chapter of your manuscript – whichever is less – plus your book synopsis) with literary agent Norah Perkins from Curtis Brown Agency. In your 10 minute slot, Perkins will review your work and give you personalised feedback and suggestions regarding what you should consider next: edit, submit or self-publish.
Only one 10 minute slot with Perkins may be booked per person. Once you have bought your ticket, email firstname.lastname@example.org to be allocated a time slot. Please state whether you have also booked the Magical Realism workshop – if possible, we will allocate a time for you before or after this workshop – then send your submission (see above for details) to email@example.com by Wednesday, October 21 so this can be forwarded to Perkins to read before the meeting. Any work submitted will be treated as confidential and forwarded directly to Perkins. It will not be saved, copied or shared by the festival organisers.
