I write books for children and young adults. Sometimes I write short stories for grown-ups.

Course fee: $250/ $210 alumni

Securing a literary agent is often an important step towards publication, with an agent acting as an intermediary between writer and publisher. But how do you know if you’re ready to submit your manuscript to an agent for consideration? It is hard for any writer to know if their work is really ready – an opinion from an expert is invaluable.

In this unique opportunity, you will be given feedback on your work and whether your manuscript is sound for submission. You’ll also have the chance to discuss where your work fits into the current marketplace and be able to consult with a leading literary agent about what your next steps should be.

For the first time Faber Writing Academy is excited to offer a version of The Agent Engagement tailored specifically for authors creating Young Adult and Middle Grade targeted works.

Your booking includes:

• 25 minute one-to-one meeting with agent Danielle Binks of Jacinta di Mase Management
• Refreshments on arrival.

There are strictly 7 appointment times available on the half hour between 10am and 2pm. Book soon to avoid disappointment.
