This event has now SOLD OUT.

Wednesday 20 September, 6.30-8.00pm at the October Gallery 

Join us for a panel discussion between two of London’s leading literary agents:

Caroline Dawnay – co founder of United Agents with over 30 years of experience in the business who has been described as a ‘canny exploiter of traditional publishing deals and new opportunities’.

Patrick Walsh – who has helped a roll call of best-selling and award-winning authors launch their writing lives and who after co-founding the hugely successful Conville & Walsh literary agency has now launched PEW Literary.

What are agents are looking for in an author? What are authors looking for in an agent? How do you know which agent to approach? What is the state of the market for biography/memoir now? What future trends do they predict? How do you best catch an agent’s attention with an idea? What can you expect an agent to do for you?

Come along and hear what promises to be a lively and instructive discussion and bring your own questions.
