Yesterday I attended part of the Hexham Book Festival. A panel talked about how to get published and writing in general. Taking part wereMark Stanton, agent (Jenny Brown Associates), Alison Baverstock, publisher, writer and teacher of creative writing (Kingston University) Jo Dickinson, editor (Quercus).
The UK is a couple of years behind the US, where publishers are discovering they must cater to the public’s requirements. Agents may lose out in this new world.
