Meet The Professionals
Readers and Writers Day
Saturday 6th July, 2019
Church Institute, Church St
We are delighted to announce the return of Wexford Literary Festival’s Meet the Professionals! This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for writers to meet a literary agent or publisher and pitch their manuscript!
In 2013 and 2018, this event resulted in a number of success stories – Caroline Busher and Joan Brady bypassed the slush pile and placed their sample chapters directly into the hands of Trace Literary Agency, who then went on to secure them both a book deal with Poolbeg Press.
Successful applicants will be given a ten-minute slot.
Terms and Conditions:
Submissions are accepted from 14 – 30 June.
All applicants must hold a ticket to our Readers and Writers Day.
You can purchase your ticket here.
Limited to one entry per application.
Open internationally. All travel expenses incurred are the applicants.
Applicants must have 3 sample chapters (Up to 6,000 words maximum) with them on July 6th, to pass to their publishing expert. They may be asked to send a complete manuscript to their expert, following this event.
Successful applicants will be notified October 12, 2018.
