Literary agent, Juliet Pickering, from Blake Friedmann, is coming to Novel Nights to share her expertise as an agent and her knowledge of contemporary publishing. So if you’re writing a book, dreaming about publication, need a new agent, or love reading, don’t miss this event.

Juliet will give advice on submitting your manuscript to literary agents and the role agents play between writers and publishers. There will be plenty of time for questions.

Local writers will also be reading the first pages of their novels. What makes a great opening for a novel? And do you judge a book by its cover, or genre, first lines or endings? Get acquainted with your local writers, whether they are published and unpublished, and see if you can spot the next literary sensation.

Juliet represents authors of fiction across  literary, commercial, mystery, crime and thriller genres as well as non-fiction memoir, pop culture, social history, feminist and political commentary and food writing. Her clients include Costa, Commnwealth, Orwell Prize, Sky Arts and Guardian First Book shortlisted authors.

Blake Friedmann is a top London agency whose focus is to represent the most talented, dynamic and exciting writers and directors across all genres. “Our intention has always been to represent writers’ careers rather than individual books or projects, and to sell those writers into as many markets, languages and media platforms as possible.”

The event starts at 8.00 sharp with doors open at 7.30. Come and meet the friendly community of writers and readers at Novel Nights who share a love of writing and good books.
