How to Get Published Without an Agent

14 May @ 18:00 - 20:00

How to get published without an agent


Join Shreya Sen-Handley author of the award-winning memoir, Memoirs of My Body in a 2-hour session at the Nottingham Writers’ Studio where she will reveal how she built her writing career without an agent.

A question often asked by writers, Shreya will shed light on everything from the process of finding the right publisher, including guidance on how to approach them and how to best present your work, to tips on how to negotiate a fair deal. She’ll also reveal how she built up a network of publishers that were always happy to hear from her, whether in the world of opera, media or top book publishers and more.

You will…

You will gain both the practical insight and emotional resilience needed to “go it alone” (with added help and support from your peers and Shreya).
