Update: I'll be on at –
18:45 on Friday 9th August (Finding An Agent with Juliet Mushens)
22:15 on Saturday 10th August (New Voices Slam Session)
15:15 on Sunday 11th August (Debut Novelists Panel)
I’ll be there with my partner in crime (read agent) Juliet Mushens of The Agency Group for my first appearance. Here’s what the Nine Worlds website says about us:
‘Agent Juliet Mushens and Gollancz author Den Patrick talk you through the publishing process from both sides. Den will share his writing tips, suggestions for preparing to submit to agents, and insights into the process from finishing your book to publication. Juliet will explain what she looks for in submissions, how to catch an agent's attention, and how her role continues far beyond when the deal is inked.’
I’m not sure there’s ever been an agent/author double act before, so this will (hopefully) be really useful for fledgeling writers.
Nine Worlds takes place from the 9-12th August at the Renaissance and the Radisson Edwardian, near Heathrow. Buy tickets for the event HERE.
The guest list is long and impressive, there are a ton different events planned, and there is strong commitment to making sure everyone has a good time without fear of asshats.
See you there?
