Writers & Artists





Are you writing a non-fiction book for publication but unsure of the next step to take? Join four literary agents on Saturday 22nd April to learn all you need to know about how to submit your manuscript, and most importantly, how to grab their attention.
This half-day event will focus entirely on popular non-fiction - making it ideal for anyone writing memoir, social history, feminist and political commentary, cookery, pop culture, popular history, narrative non-fiction and self-help.
After two seminar sessions, you'll get the chance to have a one-to-one session with the agent of your choice, and also the opportunity to discuss your work with like-minded writers over a networking lunch.





Held at York St. John University on Saturday 25th March as part of the York Literature Festival, this incredible full-day event (chaired by Alysoun Owen, Editor of the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook) includes:
  • Exciting authors Alison Weir, Natasha Pulley and Emma Flint in discussion about essential aspects of the writing process (from the importance of first chapters through to the process of editing and re-editing your work)
  • Leading UK literary agents Imogen PelhamThérèse Coen and Tom Witcomb offer advice on manuscript submission
  • Buffet lunch
  • Networking drinks




First Monday Crime




“Between the pages of a book a novelist can let his or her imagination run riot... With a TV version, there are practical constraints, even when you’re working with a budget of £20 million.”
Novelist and screenwriter Simon Booker discusses the challenges of adapting a book for the screen and his experiences as a first time author.




“When I first read a manuscript it lives so much in my imagination. It might be the closest feeling I can get to the feeling the author has when they create.”
In the next of her publishing interview series, author Claire Fuller chats with Masie Cochran, the Editor at Tin House Books, to discuss the role of an editor.
