Kate Nash Literary Agency Day 2014
Kate and Sarah gave us an excellent run down of the publishing world today, what is selling and what the publishers are looking for, plus some good advice about how to organise our finances which sounded rather too sensible, but to which I need to listen more closely.
After a chatty buffet lunch it was back to the conference room, where the conversation degenerated into a passing round the chocolate Hob Nobs, a moan fest about being misunderstood by the publishing world at large, the woes of being terminally broke and regarded as weird by our families.
In all a really great day where I got the chance to catch up with old friends and meet some exciting new ones. I only wish we could do it more often. As I always say, us writers must stick together as no one else understands us.
