Meet the Publishers
In partnership with Africa Writes Festival

with Candice Carty-Williams, Layla Mohamed, and Sharmaine Lovegrove. Chaired by Aki Schilz, Director of The Literary Consultancy

Have you written something amazing and are looking to be published? This session includes a short panel and a fun pitching workshop, offering attendees an insight into how editors and agents identify new talent. TLC is delighted to return to the festival to chair this event, having been part of this workshop since 2015. Don’t miss the chance to present your work to a panel of industry experts and receive honest feedback and insider tips.

Come prepared! Four writers will be picked at random to pitch their work. You will have 3 minutes in total: 1 minute to talk about your project idea and 2 minutes to read an extract. You’ll then get immediate feedback from the panel on the potential of your work. Just want to watch and listen? Then you are very welcome to attend!

Included in Africa Writes Weekend Pass and Saturday Day Ticket.
