Writers and Artists Events

The Writers and Artists team have informed me of a couple of events coming up soon that I thought I would share with my followers:

How to Hook an Agent
Saturday 26th January
Join us for an intimate lunch in the beautiful Georgian surroundings of Bloomsbury, London.
If your new year's resolution is to get your book published then this is your chance to come and hook your agent.
Jo Unwin
This intimate half-day event with four literary agents will give you insider knowledge on how to submit your manuscript to an agent, what they're looking for and how to grab their attention. With a networking lunch and a chance to go speed-dating with the agents, you'll receive one-to-one feedback on how best to hook your agent. 
Held in the historic literary surroundings of Bloomsbury at Bloomsbury Publishing, home to authors including Margaret Atwood and J.K. Rowling, this is your chance to get noticed.
Madeleine Milburn
There are just 18 places available so book yours now to avoid disappointment. Places are on a first come, first served basis.

How to Write Successfully for Children and Young Adults
Saturday 2nd March
Hone your writing skills with successful children's authors and find out how to get your book published.
Early bird tickets: £65
If you're passionate about writing witty, innovative and lively stories for children and young adults, this conference will help you kick start your career as a children's writer with a whizz, pop and a bang.

This conference brings together the most experienced publishers, literary agents and authors to share their experiences; give advice and guide you on how to write and publish successfully.
Camilla Reid
Camilla Reid , Editorial Director of Nosy Crow and author of the Lulu series, Rebecca McNally , Publishing Director and International Editor-in-Chief of Bloomsbury Children's Books and Jill Coleman , Managing Director of Little Tiger Press, reveal what today's publishers are looking for and top children's literary agent Caroline Walsh reveals the inside world of the author agent relationship with children's writer and illustrator Liz Pichon . Nicholas Allan , author of The Queen's Knickers , and Jon Mayhew , creative writing tutor and author of Mortlock , will be giving writing masterclasses on crafting captivating stories for young imaginations.
Liz Pichon
The day will be filled with practical advice on how to get your work ready for submission, what publishers and agents are looking for and how the agent-author relationship works. We're delighted to offer smaller, practical writing sessions with successful authors with a choice of writing workshops for the 0-7s, 8-12s and 13+ age groups.
And there'll be a chance to network with literary agents who specialise in children's literature at the end of the day with a drinks reception at Bloomsbury.
