Last week, former Novel Fair judge Anthony Glavin ran an information session on Novel Fair 2021.

Submissions for Novel Fair 2021 are now open until Friday 25 September. This year, we have introduced a new online submissions system. This means that aspiring novelists from all over the world can submit to us for the opportunity to be fast-tracked into the Irish & UK Publishing world.

This online info session that will take you through everything you need to know when it comes to submitting to the Novel Fair. Described by The Irish Times as a ‘Dragon’s Den for writers’, the Novel Fair is an Irish Writers Centre initiative which aims to introduce up-and-coming writers to top publishers and literary agents, giving novelists the opportunity to bypass the slush pile, pitch their ideas and place their synopsis and sample chapters directly into the hands of publishers and agents.
