A New Year Message

The team at South Street Writers hope that you had a lovely Christmas and wish you a happy and creative New Year!

The next Nights@SouthStreet session will take place on Tuesday 31 January when visiting South Street Writers Tutor and published author Beth Miller will share her experience and invaluable advice on 'Finding an Agent'.

In the new world of publishing, everyone is on the lookout for the 'Next Big Thing', the next Paula Hawkins whose novel 'Girl on the Train' came out of nowhere to join 'Gone Girl' in the new genre which has been dubbed 'Domestic Noir'.

This means that Literary Agents are now far more likely to take on new authors as they too look for a writer or a manuscript which has that elusive X Factor.
There is nothing like learning from someone who has been there and done that and having Beth to guide you through the whole process from identifying those agents likely to take you on to the best way to 'pitch' yourself and your work will ensure that you get a head start on your journey towards a publishing deal.

Join us at the Studios from 6.30 - 8.30pm. Sessions cost £10.00 per person and can be booked directly on the South Street Writers website using any debit or credit card via PayPal. You can also pay on the night but please let us know you're coming by leaving a message on the website:
You can also email or phone 07539 264952.

Sessions will cover the following key topics:

It's all about the story

Tuesday 25th October
How to keep your reader turning the pages by using various techniques to infuse your writing with energy and tension

Come to your senses

Tuesday 29th November
A scratchy sofa, a smile with a tooth missing, glass shattering on a marble floor, a fellow commuter's armpit on a hot day, a perfectly ripe peach, its juices dribbling down your character's chin. We look at the five senses and their crucial role in bringing writing to life.

Finding an agent

Tuesday 31st January
No longer the preserve of published authors, literary agents now represent new writers. We take you through the process of choosing an agent who is right for you and persuading them to take you on.

From blog to book and everything in between

Tuesday 28th February
We look at the brave new world of on line writing and publishing

At the end of each session there will be a chance to talk to the presenters and mingle with other writers over a glass of wine.

Each event costs £10.00 per person and can be booked directly on the South Street Writers website using any debit or credit card via PayPal. Or you can pop into the Studios or pay on the day with either cash, credit or debit card.

You can pay on the day if you wish but please can you let us know you are coming. Thank you.
