Every so often I spot Literary Agents offering 1-2-1 sessions at literary festivals. I’ve often wondered what these entail. Are they slots in which you get to pitch your work, or are they more like writing surgeries where the Agent will critique your submission?
I’ve no idea – but I’m going to find out.
I’ve just booked myself a 20 minute slot with a major London Agent at the forthcoming Frome Festival. I’ve popped my sample chapter in the post, and now I’m wondering what I’ve let myself in for.
I’ll certainly be back here to blog all about it after the event, but in the meantime has anyone else done one of these?
If you have do please comment below and let me know what happened. I’m ever so curious.
