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:


Curtis Brown’s Norah Perkins gets excited by a pitch


Literary agent Gordon Wise answers Twitter questions in the media centre (aka the Foyles staff kitchen)


Curtis Brown agent Sheila Crowley responds to a writer


Jonathan Lloyd answers questions in one of the surgeries
