Back to Events

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


18:00- 18:45: A how-to session on knowing when your novel is ready, finding the right agent and what to include in a submission package.
