The annual London Book Fair is nearly upon us, running from the 10th-12th April and I have some exciting news!
The London Book Fair will open bookings to its Agent One-to-One programme, offering aspiring authors the chance to have a one-on-one meeting with an agent at the Fair.
This fantastic opportunity will take place in LBF’s Author HQ - the area of the Fair dedicated to writers and aspiring writers.
The Agent One-to-One programme offers Author HQ attendees the opportunity to meet with a leading literary agent, who will be on hand to offer advice on the publishing process and provide feedback on authors’ pitches and ideas.
Participating agents this year include representatives from AM Heath, Darley Anderson, David Higham Associates, DKW Literary Agency, MBA, Peters Fraser & Dunlop, Sheil Land Associates and Susanna Lea Associates. Between them, the agents’ areas of interest cover everything from children’s publishing, middle grade and YA, to SF and fantasy, as well as literary fiction, commercial fiction, historical fiction and crime thrillers. Narrative non-fiction and memoir are also covered.
Meetings are by appointment only, and need to be booked in advance of the Fair.
