Candice:Last year, Phil and I went to an event called “How to get published.” Organised by the esteemed publication, the writers and artist yearbook. We came away with lots of ideas about our writing style, what might work when writing to an agent, and how it’s all really a game as there are no right or wrong answers. We also learned alot about our fellow writers, their thoughts, approaches and dress sense. (Nice Mulberry bag not essential but a bonus).
Nearly one year on and we have a few more rejection letters under our belt, some more feedback from our readers and some suggestions for a rewrite. In fact, I had another idea about an approach when I was out running the other day, but I am going to keep that between me and Phil for our next catch up. So, we thought we have a dip into this how to get published malarky again, just to keep us fresh.
Tonight we are off to an event that is part of Stratford Literary Festival so see if some of the Bard’s success will rub off on us. We’ll let you know how we get on.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends….
