A dynamic mix of workshops, tutoring and one-to-one sessions and free writing time with London Writers' Club founder Jacq Burns.
Workshops include: How to pitch your idea to agents. We road-test your concept and practice synopsis and query letter writing. We apply the editors' checklist, the 'test' that the big 4 publishers apply when considering books to publish.
Focussing on structure, story, voice, theme and concept and title, we look at practical examples of how to make your words work harder and how to edit and polish your work and make it more readable.
Discoverability is key since the meteoric rise of Amazon. It is crucial to help readers to find your book and once found, get them to tell others about it. Discover how to work this into your book even in the early stages of your writing and crucially before you pitch to agents. You’ll find out how to make your writing more lovable and worthy of word-of-mouth – a key ingredient of any bestseller.
Themed lunches including: Books we love and why we love them. The inside line on how and why these books become so successful. And publishing industry gossip. What will be the next big thing?
Evenings will inspire and fuel our writing with cultural tours of Puglia's stunning towns followed by aperitivo, dinner and gelato. The fabulous Espressino Travel will take care of us in Italy.
