The Writing Life Live Panel Discussion: Talking About Your Writing Life
You’ve written and edited a great story, novel, poem, article or post. You’ve submitted it to agents and publishers and now there’s nothing else to do but wait for the cascade of acceptances, right?
Now it’s time to talk about your writing and yourself as a writer. Agents, publicists, publishers, interviewers, readers: everyone wants to know who you are and why they should read your work.
What do you tell them?
If you can’t pitch your writing and yourself, your writing just may not get read. Don’t stand in the way of a good story.
Friday, March 20 from 6 to 7 PM, Lancaster University's Campus in the City presents a panel of writers including Lecturer, mentor and Award-winning novelist Jenn Ashworth, “one of the UKs 12 Best New Writers (BBC); Steve Dearden, Writer, Producer and Director of the Writing Squad and Vicky Winstanley, Professional Blogger, Marketing and PR Specialist joined by host Yvonne Battle-Felton of The Writing Life in a live discussion on pitching your work and talking about yourself as a writer.
The discussion is free and will be held at Campus in the City in the St. Nicholas Arcades located next to Costa Coffee. It will also be aired on Bailrigg FM's 87.7 (at a future date) and be interactive via Twitter.
Please reserve free tickets via Eventbrite (The Writing Life) and contact Yvonne Battle-Felton via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or for additional information.
