What does it take to get your work out onto the editor desks and how do you most effectively present yourself as an emerging writer in the competitive world without losing your creative impulses?
TLC was invited to join the busy two week Suzhou Bookworm International Literary Festival, which rotates authors between Beijing, Chengdu and Suzhou. Rebecca Swift joined Jo Lusby, Beijing Penguin publisher, for an event about the Ins and Outs of Publishing.
Rebecca and Jo provided expert advice about writing, the publishing industry and submitting one’s manuscript to agents. For writers living abroad it can be difficult to get to professional feedback or to understand what is happening to publishing in the UK. As a follow-up to the event, there were also one-to-one sessions available for writers who wanted an to consult TLC about their writing.
