Calling Northern writers! We are offering you a fantastic opportunity to meet a literary agent right here in Leeds. Shelley Instone is a very experienced editor and has recently set up The Shelley Instone Literary Agency.Although London-based, she is originally from Leeds and would like to meet the writing community here in her home town. Shelley says, ” I’m very aware that the North is still rather neglected in the publishing world. I’m keen to put that right and tap into this rich talent pool.”
Shelley will be introduced by one of her début authors, Leeds writer June Taylor. She will then talk about the business of editing and getting your work published. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and then do some mingling in the bar afterwards.
Shelley is open to submissions and is actively searching for new writing talent specifically for literary and commercial fiction. This includes children’s and adult fiction alongside non– fiction (memoir, biography and cookery). She does not represent poetry, plays or picture books.
Find out more about the Shelley Instone Literary Agency here but better still come along and hear what she has to say.
Tickets are £5.00 + Eventbrite booking fee. We anticipate that this event will be very popular so please book your place in advance here.
