21 June SOLD OUT

An opportunity for fiction writers to have a bespoke one-to-one session with Spread the Word's Writer Development Manager, Eva Lewin.

You may be at early stages of a first draft or working through the fifth draft; Eva will discuss any aspect of your work with you – be it the text itself, the driving ideas behind it or how to research agents and publishers, and point you to networks, resources and opportunities.

Eva will read a 3000 word extract plus your synopsis in advance and meet with you for sixty minutes of discussion. This kind of session is particularly useful for opening pages of novels, for short stories and talking through the key challenges and features of your idea.

If you are not able to do either the dates or times available please contact hello@spreadtheword.org.uk and we will try to arrange an alternative date.
