Do you dream of getting published?

Do you dream of getting published?

We’ve crafted a very special writing weekend, in partnership with Bloomsbury Institute and Writers & Artists, with two prize winning authors, Liz Jensen and Romesh Gunesekera.

Leading the Saturday writing workshops are Liz Jensen, the bestselling author of eight acclaimed novels, three times nominated for the Orange Prize for Fiction for Egg Dancing, Ark Baby and War Crimes for the Home and Romesh Gunesekera, a Goldsmiths College creative writing tutor, and author of four novels: Reef, which was shortlisted for both the Booker Prize and the Guardian Fiction Prize, The Sandglass, winner of the inaugural BBC Asia Award, Heaven’s Edge, shortlisted for a Commonwealth Writers Prize and The Match.

They will be joined by NYU writing mentor and author Emma Claire Sweeney and editorial consultant Cressida Downing of thebookanalyst.co.uk.

On Sunday you’ll find out how to get your book published with our experts, thriller writer and entrepreneur Joanna Penn and editor of The Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook, Alysoun Owen. To top it off, pitch your book to literary agents over a glass of wine at the Bloomsbury Publishing offices.

MyHotels Bloomsbury are offering a 20% discount to Psychologies readers for the night of 20 April, subject to availability.
