Join Novel London, a platform for emerging and established novelists, and a social collective for authors, for a day of talks and advice on getting your creative writing ready for market. With a focus on small, self- and digital publishing, authors will share tips and tricks from their own hard-won experience, aimed at supporting and encouraging new and emerging talents working without the support of a big publisher.
The day will culminate with a prize ceremony celebrating the winners of Novel London’s first ever competition, launched in June.
