Publishing and preparing to submit your work
One of the biggest steps for any writer is finding a literary agent. It can also be the most daunting. How do you know when you’re ready to submit your work? What are agents looking for? What are the best ways of presenting your book, and what are the common mistakes? Antonia Hodgson is a publisher of twenty years’ experience, and also a published author. In this practical masterclass, she will guide you through the process, provide tips on creating a great introductory letter, and offer insights into the publishing industry as a whole.
Antonia Hodgson is the award-winning author of the historical thrillers featuring Tom Hawkins in early Georgian England. She is currently Editor-in-Chief at Little Brown Publishing House and has edited both fiction and non-fiction, working with some of the publisher’s biggest authors including Nora Roberts, Elizabeth Kostova and Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. Her own debut novel, The Devil at Marshalsea was submitted to a different publisher (Hodder) as Antonia was so well known in the publishing world. Antonia will conduct the workshop with years of experience on both sides to back up her advice.
