Are you a new writer aspiring to publication? Would you like the opportunity to make connections with the publishing/commissioning world, learn how the industry works from its experts and hone the creative and practical skills needed to enter it?

Comma Press invite you to attend their National Creative Writing Industry Day, in partnership with The Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University. Taking place on the 1st November 2019, this fair is committed to providing participants with a unique introduction to the publishing industry and its professionals. This whole day event will run from 8.45am, when registration opens, until 5.45pm, when the final pitching sessions come to a close. The day officially starts with its introduction at 9:30am, once everyone has been registered.

Featuring a brilliant line-up of authors, agents, and editors, we tailor to every type of writer: you can watch a keynote speech from an acclaimed debut author; attend panel sessions and workshops on a broad range of topics; and take one-to-one pitching sessions with leading literary agents/editors.

Writers & Artists will be sponsoring the How NOT To Submit Your Manuscript workshop.
