On the 26th November (just a few weeks away, now), we’re running our very first Discovery Day Online – a unique event we’re very excited about.
On the day, authors, readers, and anyone with an interest in the publishing world, will be able to pitch book ideas to us, get writing tips from Curtis Brown Creative, ask the agents at Curtis Brown and Conville & Walsh questions about the route to publication, and (our favourite, of course) join in with a live Twitter book group session with author Rachel Hore.
The whole day will take place on Twitter, and each event throughout the day will have its own hashtag, which you can add to your tweet to join the conversation. Feeling confused? Here’s our handy guide…
9am – 1pm
Your monthly chance to pitch directly to agents is back – just use the hashtag to get your pitch read by our agents.
1pm – 2pm
We’ll be reading The Silent Tide, a book set in the world of publishing, and have copies to give away if you’d like to join in on the day. All you have to do is let us know what your favourite book group book is on Twitter, using #DiscoveryDay, to win one of 10 copies we have to give away.
2pm – 3.30pm
Anna Davis, director of Curtis Brown Creative, along with published alumni Antonia Honeywell and Kate Hamer, will be tweeting writing tips and taking your questions about character, plot, genre, title, structure, style…well, anything you want to ask about your writing.
3.30pm – 5pm
Your chance to ask our agents questions about anything from pitching and submitting to self publishing and their favourite book this year. We’re all ears.
We hope you’ll be able to join us on the day. If you have any questions in advance, do email us on email@example.com.
