Please can someone explain what is meant by topic because I’m getting really confused. What, for example, is the difference between fiction and creative writing? Does ‘contemporary’ tackle stories set today but remembering their childhood?
Hello everyone , firstly I hope you are all keeping well and being creative.
I am a screenwriter and have several scripts with known directors and producers with connections to Universal and Netflix etc. I sold seven scripts last month alone that are now making major offers of Hollywood stars. I am searching for an agent that can help me deal with contracts and get scripts to those that are unsolicited. I have done well getting contacts and scripts up till now but think it’s time to be represented.
Hello, My name is Sarah and I wanted to get to know newbies like me and people that have just taken their first publishing steps like me... I didn't intend to do but I am doing a writing course that the assignment asked for a mock publication enquiry..So I found a publishers and it was online submission and I pressed send...GULP lol x
This rule "No simultaneous submissions" bothers me a lot. It's present in most, if not all submission guidelines. I understand that publisher doesn't want other publishers to have the exact same novel, that is perfectly understanding and valid point. Problem is, at least in my experience, most publishers will not answer to your submission, ever. Not even a short formal letter of rejection which I would really appreciate.
I am currently writing a book about my favorite artists and bands. I will be mentioning many song titles and band names. I will not be quoting any song titles and there will be nothing negative about any of the songs or artists.
Where do I stand from a legal/copyright point of view in the UK?
