A Literary Agent & You with Alex Adsett
In this two hour zoom workshop with literary agent Alex Adsett you will learn what an agent does, if and when they can help your career, the different ways to pitch to publishers and agents (and what not to do), and an opportunity to try out a live pitch on the day. The pitches will be chosen at random, with a live 3 min pitch to the room, where the pitch (not the manuscript) is then critiqued by Alex.
