Julia Churchill at West Sussex Writers' Club
On the evening of Thursday 10th March Julia Churchill (Agent for Greenhouse Literary Agency) gave the monthly talk for the West Sussex Writers' Club (Worthing). Julia talked for over an hour on life as a Literary Agent and gave many top tips on what an agent is looking for in a submission and manuscript. It was fascinating to hear of the work involved by an agent, particularly the daily routine, and a surprise to find that Julia reads all submissions herself. She was clearly passionate about her work and loves the children's market. All information was submitted by excellent examples which really helped to get across her message. This was an excellent talk and full of key facts for any writer seeking an agent in the current market. It was also good to hear Julia support ebooks and the markets for new media within the publishing industry.
