Ever wanted to write a book but don’t know how to get past that first paragraph? Or, have you already written a novel but have no idea where to start to get it published? If any of this sounds like you then Grazia has the perfect event to answer all your questions, but hurry, because we only have 50 seats left...
Next Monday (28th May) Grazia will be hosting the exclusive event, 'How To Get Your First Novel Published', where leading novelists including Labyrinth author, Kate Mosse, Sister author Rosamund Lupton and literary agents like Felicity Blunt of Curtis Brown – whose authors include Pulitzer-prize winner Jennifer Egan for A Visit from the Good Squad - will cover everything from how to start writing, coming up with ideas, and most importantly, how to get your book noticed and eventually published.
Did you know that most publishing houses and agencies only want to see your first three paragraphs? Or that, you should actually try to emulate authors you love in order to develop your own writing style? It's little tricks like these that will unleash, not only, your inner best-selling author but also, your inner publicist. And, remember, it only takes one person so be prepared to send your book to hundreds of agents and editors.
Want to know more? Book your spot now but remember, we only have 50 seats left so hurry!
How to Get Your First Novel Published will be held at the Purcell Room at London’s Southbank Centre at 6.45pm, Monday 28 May. Tickets cost £10 + booking fee. www.southbankcentre.co.uk
