‘Meet the Agent’ Event

Location: Writers’ Block, Unit 5, Broadcasting House, Newport Road, Middlesbrough. TS1 5DG.
Date: Thursday, 1st December 2011
Duration: 1-6pm
Price: £5

Tanya Tillett from the Knight Hall Agency, Nicolas Turner from Linda Seifert Management and Cathryn Summerhayes from William Morris Agency will be on hand at Writers’ Block to meet local aspiring writers and to answer your questions.

Join us between 1 and 3pm for a Q&A followed by writer/agent speed dating, where every writer will have the opportunity to pitch themselves and their work to at least one agent. Then, between 3 and 5pm, there will be a series of one-to-one surgeries, where selected writers will each spend 20 minutes with an agent. To register your interest in this opportunity, email laura@writersblockne.com, including a 10 page writing sample. We regret that due to anticipated high demand, not every applicant will receive a slot.

Between 5.15 and 6pm, join us again at the Isaac Wilson for drinks and networking, where agents will answer any further questions that you have. Contact laura@writersblockne.com to register your interest.

If you live or work in Middlesbrough and would like to knock some of your ideas into shape before the event, contact us at the same address to organise some one-to-one mentoring.
