The Freelance logoThe Freelance is the bulletin of London Freelance Branch of the National Union of Journalists.

Rebecca Swift of The Literary Consultancy gave advice for an article titled “Get that book published” alongside Matthew Hamilton of literary agent Aitken Alexander.

Here is a quote from the article:

“Both our experts noted book publishing is a much tougher world than even five years ago, and your book proposal has to show you’re passionate enough – and have enough stamina – to pull it off. You need to convince an agent that you have the enthusiasm to carry out a labour of love, and only then look at the pragmatic, market-oriented aspects of the project.”
