CALLING ALL WRITERS … Today – 21st April, is #PitchCB over on Twitter. Go take a look. It’s your chance to pitch your novel to our agents in a tweet. If they ‘like’ your pitch, they’ll invite you to send in your novel … Well, this month, CBC is joining in by offering a free place on one of our £200 online creative writing courses to one writer whose pitch we like. If you’d like to win the free place our next Starting to Write Your Novel  course (worth £200), here’s what you need to do:

  • Write your pitch – which must be less than 140 characters, just like a tweet – into an email

Starting to Write Your Novel is a 6-week online course to help you get going on your novel, using videos, tasks and with a forum to share your work with us and with your fellow students. The course starts on 17th May! Find out more by clicking here.

*If you’ve already paid for a place on the next Starting to Write Your Novel course, you can still enter. If you win, we’ll refund your fee.

**You do need to join the mailing list to be eligible to win …

Good luck!
