More pictures of Discovery Day

by Rufus Purdy Events

We put up some pictures of Curtis Brown Creative‘s Discovery Day yesterday. The event, which took place last Saturday at Foyles bookshop in London, saw hundreds of aspiring authors pitch their novels – speed dating-style – to the literary agents of Curtis Brown and Conville & Walsh, and take part in special ‘surgeries’ in which agents answered all questions thrown their way. Here are some more images from the day:

As well as expert teaching from published authors, all our novel-writing courses offer dedicated modules on submitting your novel to literary agents – and include sessions on writing a synopsis and preparing a covering letter.
