This workshop will cover how to write a winning query letter, synopsis and pitch, along with an overview of the publishing industry and the opportunity to ask an agent anything you’ve ever wanted to know. With group and individual exercises throughout the day, and detailed feedback on each participant’s material, you will leave armed with everything you need to ensure a stand-out submission. Sallyanne Sweeney is a literary agent at Mulcahy Associates in London. She is building her list of fiction and non-fiction authors for children and adults, as well as a small number of picture book illustrators.
*Participants will be asked to submit their cover letters for review ahead of time and to bring their pitch, synopsis and opening of their manuscript (first 100 words max) along on the day.
