Writers’ Week: Sending Your Work Out into the World with Beth Miller

Join Beth Miller for a workshop on Friday 22nd October, 4-6pm as part of New Writing South’s Writers’ Week.

You’ve finished your novel, memoir or non-fiction proposal and polished it to within an inch of its life. Congratulations, that’s a huge achievement! Now it’s time to send it out into the publishing world to agents and editors. How can you ensure that your submission is as good as it possibly can be before you hit the send button? In this session Beth will cover just about everything you need to know: from researching agents and publishers, writing the dreaded synopsis, tricky query letter and perfect pitch, to handling the inevitable rejections. She’ll also talk a little on how to handle success when it comes your way.

Suitable for writers preparing to submit.

About the tutor:
Beth Miller has published five novels, including the bestselling The Missing Letters of Mrs Bright (Bookouture, 2020). Her sixth novel will be published in January 2022. She has also published two non-fiction books. Beth works as a coach and mentor for other writers, and has taught creative writing for six years, including for the Arvon Foundation.
