Aspiring writers should know all about our brilliant Orange Prize for Fiction competition to find the next best thing in literature by now. The competition is drawing to a close (see here for more details).
In the meantime, what better way to kick off your writing career than by attending our amazing evening event, How to get your First Novel Published, at Southbank Centre on Monday 28 May.
There will be a host of key contacts such as novelists, agents and publishers, giving advice and taking questions to help you crack into the literature world. Whether you have written your first draft, or are yet to write the first sentence, this event is certainly not to be missed.
Best-selling author and Orange Prize co-founder Kate Mosse will chair discussion with fellow best-selling writer Rosamund Lupton about the best ways to get published. Rosamund will divulge her creative inspiration and how she finally got the novel she had been writing for five years published. Her 2010 debut, ‘Sister’ sold over half a million copies and was featured on Richard and Judy’s Book Club.
Then, Kate will chair a chat with a panel of experts including Rosamund, Felicity Blunt, a literary agent for leading agent Curtis Brown and Candida Lacey, CEO / MD of publisher, Myriad Editions. This is your chance to grill the experts for the best advice from the publishing business.
