Manuscript Submission Masterclass

We have five free places for underrepresented writers to take part in our Manuscript Submission Masterclass: Fiction event. 

On Wednesday 7th April, literary agents Abi Fellows (The Good Literary Agency) and Laura Williams (Greene & Heaton) will lead this two-hour online masterclass in which you'll receive how-to advice on how to produce a covering letter, guidance on producing an attention-grabbing pitch, tips on writing a synopsis, and general insight into the role literary agents play for their authors. 

Thirty minutes will be made available for a Q&A, while all attendees have the opportunity to submit their covering letter to receive feedback from one of the participating agents. 

To apply for a free place, please email writersandartists@bloomsbury.com with the following information:

  • Confirming your availability on Wednesday 7th April 6-8pm GMT
  • Who you are and what your book is about 
  • Why this opportunity speaks to you

Places will be selected on a random basis, with those selected notified by email.
