Event Details

Learn about the writer’s journey to publication from one of Australia’s most experienced publishers. 

Get the inside scoop on perfecting your manuscript and landing a publishing deal. In this workshop aimed at both fiction and nonfiction writers, Louise Thurtell will provide invaluable and realistic advice about how to maximise your chance of securing a publishing deal, covering topics including:

  • the craft of writing;

  • the importance of revising your manuscript prior to submission;

  • how to find the most suitable literary agent or publisher for your work;

  • the different electronic submission systems you should try; and

  • what made a first chapter and synopsis leap out at her when reading Friday Pitch and other submissions.
