Honest advice on how to get your manuscript read by agents and publishers, from book industry expert Scott Pack. The slush pile: a huge stack of unsolicited manuscripts received by publishers and literary agents. If you want to ensure your book has the best possible chance of getting published, avoiding the slush pile is a good place to start. During this informal and sometimes irreverent workshop, UK publisher Scott Pack offers straight-talking advice on how to ensure your own submission gets noticed.

Using his many years' experience in the book industry, Scott will share advice on everything from how to identify the right publisher or agent, to how to write a killer synopsis and cover letter. Plus, for those brave enough to share their pitches*, he'll be looking for volunteers to submit their work for live feedback during the class. If you're ready (or almost ready) to pitch your novel to a publisher, you won't regret investing in this workshop.

*If you would like to bring along a copy of your cover letter and/or pitch, Scott will be looking for volunteers on the day to submit their work for live feedback. Please note that this is not compulsory and only a select few submissions will be reviewed during the class.
