London Writers' Club Agent Sandra Sawicka of The Marjacq Agency event, Tuesday 22 March 2016

On the 22nd of March at 6.30pm at The Cube in London, the London Writers' Club are having their latest Agent event:

London Writers' Club
helping writers connect with agents & publishers
March 2016

Spring is slowly appearing, its time to shrug off your 'winter coat' and come out of your writer's hibernation. Agents are as keen as ever to sign new writers but writers have to be wary of submitting their work too early. 
Coming up in May we have our Fiction workshop - but is your book ready? and are you?  
When is the right time to submit to an agent? how do you tell if you have truly finished your novel? and just how long do you spend on writing the submission letter and synopsis?
WORKSHOP DETAILS: May 5, 10-4pm. Led by literary agent, Kirsty Mclachlan of DGA Ltd. and London Writers' Club Director, and author of Write a Bestseller, Jacq Burns.
Successfully pitching to an agent or editor on your book concept takes brevity and power. Whether you're pitching at a live event, or in the context of a submission letter, there are key essentials which must be included. What you'll learn:
  • 5 essential elements of in every submission letter
  • components of a compelling novel hook - is your concept strong enough? Is it roadworthy/commercial? 
  • common mistakes that appear in typical submission letters
  • the secret to writing a great synopsis
  • the importance of choosing the right title
  • how to write compelling opening chapters
  • Writers who are actively submitting agents and publishers
  • Writers whose submissions always get rejected (or never get a response)
  • Writers who will be live pitching their concept at a conference/event 
  • Writers who want to road test their concepts and get instant feedback
