Agent and Writer One-to-Ones
All tickets include the invaluable opportunity to submit your work for consideration for an Agent or Writer one-to-one.
These places are limited and highly sought after, and the Writers’ Conference is delighted to have been part of the success stories of those writers who’ve had requests for further work or met their future agent through these meetings.
Agents and editors confirmed are:
Carole Blake from Blake Friedmann
Juliet Pickering from Blake Friedmann
Sam Copeland from Rogers, Colridge and White
Davinia Andrew-Lynch from Andlyn
Fiona Sampson – Poet and Poetry Editor
Places are allocated through a submission process for ticket holders, and this will open on the 16th of November 2015 and close on 22nd January 2016.
