Curtis Brown Creative: Pitching Your Novel
Tue 18 Jun 2024 to Tue 18 Jun 2024
Ready to share your work with literary agents? Hone your pitch on this practical and inspiring one-day online course.

If you’re keen to submit your novel to literary agents, this one-day intensive Zoom course will help to make your submission stand out from the pack. 

Led by CBC's Head of Courses Jennifer Kerslake and former Curtis Brown agent and author Lauren Pearson – with a combined over 20 years of experience working in publishing – this course will guide you through the art of pitching and writing the all-important query letter.

It’s ideal for those who want to find a clear, powerful way to talk about their novel and present it and themselves in the best possible light. You’ll learn how to hone your elevator pitch, that all important sentence (or two) that hooks your reader and reveals what’s at the heart of your novel.

You’ll have the opportunity to refine your pitch in the morning, before trying it out on Curtis Brown literary agent, Ciara Finan. As well as receiving direct on-the-spot feedback, you will get the chance to ask Ciara any questions you have on the submissions process and how to catch an agent’s eye – all in a supportive and welcoming group of aspiring writers.

Date: Tuesday 18 June 2024
Location: Online via Zoom
Cost: £125
