London Writers' Club
 making connections with writers, agents and publishers
June 2016

Hi all 

Our June event with agent, Charlotte Seymour of the Andrew Nurnberg Agency was fascinating. Check out her top seven ways to write an International Bestseller here.

Book an advance ticket here for £15

Fiction writers - our next fiction proposal workshop will be in September.  Book here.  
Damyanti Biswas who attended the May workshop said: 
 it was the workshop with Kirsty McLachlan and Jacq Burns that helped me polish up my one-line and single paragraph pitch to high sheen. Their incisive comments helped me cut through the waffle, and as a result I not only received multiple offers of representation, I'm also now signed up with the wonderful Ed Wilson from the Johnson & Alcock agency. Writing a publishable book is hard, but it is often harder still to bring it to the attention of the right people in the publishing industry.
Check out Damyanti's website here.
