London Writers Network
The Path to Publication in partnership with Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency

Are you a writer looking for an agent? Would you like to find out what happens once you've secured agency representation for your work? Free to London Writers Network members, with tickets available to buy for all.


The team from the Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency are excited to talk you through about the next stage in the process of being a writer: from joining an agency, to refining your work with an agent, through to the process behind how you and your manuscript are matched with publishers worldwide. Using case studies and combining a wealth of agenting experience, they will demystify the next stage of strategic planning on the path to publication, and show you how the kernels of ideas and inspiration in your work grow into a pitch to publishers, and build out into a campaign to entice readers all over the world. There will be an opportunity to ask questions too.
