Online Mentoring Industry Day

February 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Industry Day Feb 23
THIS IS AN INVITATION-ONLY EVENT, exclusively for TLC Chapter and Verse mentees and included within TLC’s mentoring programme offer, which covers 12 months of one-to-one support, a full manuscript assessment, and this all-day event. Twice a year, TLC opens its (virtual!) doors to mentees enrolled on our Chapter and Verse programme for an intimate one-day event to help writers better understand the ins and outs of the publishing process. Mentees will have been working on their book project with their TLC mentor over several one-to-one feedback sessions, and this day offers the opportunity for them to meet with a literary agent and a publisher, and fellow mentees. The aim of the day is to demystify some of the in-house processes around submissions, acquisitions, rights, publicity and marketing, sales and distribution, and other elements that often remain hidden from view, as well as to get first-hand insight from those working within the industry and learn from their experiences. There will also be the opportunity to pitch work for live feedback from our industry guests. TLC mentees will be invited to this event on a rolling basis, usually towards the end of the six feedback sessions with their TLC mentor. Occasionally, writers may be invited in from prizes we support, or initiatives we partner on, for example the Bridport Prize and the SI Leeds Prize. This Industry Day will be held online via Zoom. Automatic captions are provided. Speakers: Anna Power (Johnson & Alcock)
Anna Power is the MD of Johnson & Alcock and looks after a diverse list of fiction and non-fiction. Anna represents book club and literary fiction and crime and suspense. She is especially drawn to a distinctive voice, an evocative setting and a page-turning story.  She enjoys everything from warm, human stories about families and relationships thought to sharp, witty contemporary fiction, and has a soft spot for books that make her laugh, and dark stories that keep her awake at night. On the non-fiction side Anna is interested in memoir and narratives that open doors to unfamiliar worlds and experiences.
Phoebe Morgan (Hodder) Phoebe Morgan is the crime and thriller Publisher at Hodder and Stoughton, part of Hachette UK.
