How to get published: An event presented in partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing

Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 18:00 to Friday, October 30, 2020 - 20:15

Online, via 'Writers and Artists Website'

After holding Sold Out events at the Open University offices of Edinburgh, London, Cardiff & Belfast, we are moving to an online incarnation of our successful pre-pandemic conference format. Which means business as usual, with a line-up of acclaimed authors, commissioning editors and literary agents on hand to offer tips on the creative process as well as invaluable insight into the world of publishing.

Nov 11

Helena book launch invitation

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 18:00 to 20:00

Online via Zoom

The event is open to all and will include a welcome from the Executive Editors of the Complete Works of Evelyn Waugh, as well as from Alexander Waugh, Evelyn’s grandson and General Editor. There will be a Q&A with Sara, and the opportunity to hear from other editors working on the series. We hope to hear from Waugh himself too, in a recording of him reading from the book he said was his best – and was also the only one of his own works that he read aloud to his children.
