At this talk and Q&A, publisher, Sharmaine Lovegrove will talk about the path to publishing, how to find an agent, how to submit fiction and non-fiction and how to manage your expectations as a writer.
Come along with your questions about any part of the publishing process and find out what stories make a good fit for Dialogue Books.
Three writers are invited to read at this event. For submissions see the website novelnights.co.uk/submissions.
Sharmaine is a publisher at Dialogue Books, an imprint of Little Brown which publishes stories from voices often excluded from the mainstream. She has worked in publishing all her life, selling books on a London market stall and an English-language bookshop in Berlin. She founded a literary scouting company, was the literary editor at Elle and now spearheads Dialogue Books.
Dialogue Books shines a spotlight on stories for, about and by readers from the LGBTQI+, disability, working class and BAME communities. The imprint has a clear focus of distinctive, cross-genre titles that spark a conversation across fiction, non-fiction, commercial and literary publishing.
