Pitching your Novel to a Literary Agent

6pm — 8pm

Savoy Tup
2 Savoy Street

Tickets £16.50

Book online at Eventbright.

Successful literary agent Penny Holroyde (Holroyde Cartey Agency) will be giving an exciting session on how to pitch your novel and how to approach a literary agent. This is your chance to avoid making the most common mistakes and to find out how to make the right impression.

Agents receive a huge number of submissions and have little time to make a decision on your pitch. How do you attract their attention? This is a fantastic opportunity to gain professional input on approaching agents and pitching to them.

If you have any questions you would like Penny to cover at the event, please email beccaaharding@gmail.com by 17th May.

This event is open to all new and experienced writers. Everyone is welcome, both men and women. Our events aim to support you in your career as a writer.

Penny Holroyde founded Holroyde Carter in 2015 and she represents a quality list of award-winning and best-selling authors and illustrators primarily in publishing, but also in licensing, and film and television across the world. She has been in publishing for over twenty years for publishers Walker Books in the UK and Candlewick Press in the US and then as an agent with Caroline Sheldon.
