Summer Classes: Literary Agents and Fairytales
1st Jun 2012 in Writing
This summer I’ll be teaching a couple of one-day classes at Glasgow University DACE. Hope to see you there!
How to Get a Literary Agent
So you’ve written a novel – now what? It can be hard to catch a literary agent’s eye, but this one-day course will show how to best represent yourself and your writing to find the best agent for you. Guidance will be provided on agent research, cover letters, follow-up etiquette, and more. Don’t worry if you haven’t yet completed your novel – it’s good to plan in advance!
Tuesday 26th June, 10.00-16.00, £23

The class is friendly, informal and supportive – bring along your favourite story and hear some brand new tales.
