How to Get Published: Online dates

Thursday, May 6, 2021 - 18:00 to Friday, May 7, 2021 - 20:15

The Open University is pleased once again to be collaborating with The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook (Bloomsbury) to offer a programme of events providing advice on writing and publishing, called How to Get Published.

This year, the events will be held online, over two evenings in May. The programme features talks on various aspects of the writing and publishing journey, from writing across genres, to how books are sold.

Guest speakers include the novelist Natasha Pulley, author of the international bestseller, The Watchmaker of Filigree Street; and Anita Sethi, whose nature writing trilogy begins with I Belong Here: A Journey Along the Backbone of Britain. You’ll also hear from Silé Edwards, literary agent at Mushens Entertainment, and Sarah McLean, International Sales Director at Bloomsbury Publishing.

The online events will be held on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th May. For more information and to book a place, please visit the events web page.

There is a discount on the ticket price for students on OU Creative Writing courses – full price is £35 for both evenings, student price only £20. Those students taking Creative Writing modules will find the discount code on their module website in the ‘How to get published’ news item.
