Children & Young Adults Conference
Our annual How To Write For Children & Young Adults conference will be back in 2018, with a day of writing workshops and panel discussions on Saturday 24th February. Meet experts of children’s publishing, and find out how to improve your writing and how best to increase your chances of getting published!
In the morning, choose a practical workshop session with a successful children’s authors, who will offer essential advice on aspects of the writing process. You can learn how to put together a brilliant picture book with David Litchfield, write middle grade with Kiran Millwood Hargrave, or talk all things YA with Patrice Lawrence
The afternoon sees a keynote speech from Kate Pankhurst on the responsibilities - and importance! - of writing for children followed by an interactive panel discussion with leading children's literary agents looking for debut authors to add to their lists.

"I hope that having the opportunity to meet agents and publishers face-to-face, and ask them questions, will provide more helpful than relying on a website or twelve."
In the run up to Saturday's How To Get Published conference at Plymouth University, Literature Works interviewed literary agent Juliet Pickering, who discusses her involvement with the day and the importance of attending writing conferences. 

Beat the Rejection Clinic
New dates have been added to our popular Beat The Rejection Clinic service - a 30-minute meeting with a literary agent to discuss your work and take advice on how to take it forward within the current marketplace. 

"If you’re apprehensive of taking the plunge, or worse, are being arrogant with yourself, or are plain scared... Don’t be. Just re-frame your world."
SJ Sherwood, author of The Denounced series, discusses why he opted to self-publish, and the things he learned along the way.

"Bloggers can be a huge force for good around book promotion, and have introduced me to books I love but would never have read based just on the blurb."
