The Manchester-based publisher Comma Press has asked us to share details of the second Creative Writing Graduate Fair at MMU (in partnership with The Writing School at MMU) that will take place on Friday 4th November 2016. If you’re looking for a unique introduction to the publishing industry and its professionals then be sure to mark your calendar.
At the fair you can:
– pitch your ideas to experienced literary agents, matched to suit your genre preferences – they have everything from screenwriting and science fiction, to poetry and novels covered (plus all that’s in between!)
– hear panellists discuss topics such as disruptive and digital publishing, independent vs mainstream, and navigating the writing life
– take part in workshops & drop-in sessions, for example putting together the perfect submissions package and performing your work
– and watch a Keynote speech from acclaimed author Kit de Waal.
This event is not only for current students or graduates of university, but for anyone with an interest in creative writing and who has ideas that they want to share and build upon.
