Author & Agent Workshop with Janis Mackay & Kathryn Ross
Sat 8 Dec 2018 to Sat 8 Dec 2018
A full day course taking place in central Edinburgh and led by leading literary agent Kathryn Ross, of Fraser Ross Associates, and award winning author and creative writing tutor Janis Mackay for those wishing to prepare for submitting their work. Participants will have the chance to submit work, receive feedback and work on their pitch.

This workshop will give a real grounding in negotiating the submission process. In the class we will practise pitching, writing a synopsis and covering letter, as well as receiving one to one feedback on your work in progress from Kathryn.

Participants to this workshop ideally should have a novel ready for submission, or almost ready. The day will give insights into the world of publishing, and how best to negotiate this terrain to give your work the best possible chance of success.

Participants are invited to send 1000 words of their novel, or work in progress, to Kathryn and Janis ahead of the course. Written and face to face feedback will be given.

Date: Saturday 8 December 2018
Location: Edinburgh City
Cost: £125
