Budding novelists, get ready: Novel Fair 2016 is here!
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.
This event marks the beginning of the Novel Fair 2016 submissions period which will remain open for six months, with the Fair itself taking place in February 2016. The launch will allow aspiring novelists to gain the inside track about how the Fair works.
Former Novel Fair winner Niamh Boyce (The Herbalist) will share insights on this unique opportunity to connect with publishers and agents, and Dan Bolger, Commissioning Editor of New Island Books will reveal how the Fair benefits publishers through discovering new authors. A must for anyone who has ever dreamed of getting a novel published.
