THE ONE-OFFS

BOOKING OPEN NOW – email thebrittonbookgeek@gmail.com to secure your space!

These are three very practical online workshops to help demystify different aspects of the querying process. Ideal for newbies and veterans alike – they will provide ideas and tips to make your quest to find an agent much more simple and exciting!

My heart is that people would not be fearful of approaching agents. I want to pass on advice from my own experience (read more about that here) and help you sell your story in a way that feels comfortable and authentic. I am also very well aquainted with rejection and want to face up to the negative feelings and thought cycles that throws us into, and suggest ways to break out of this and focus on your dreams.

The workshops are taught online, via Zoom, and are £10 each or £25 for all three. They are a chance for you to focus in on a specific area of querying – book your space now by emailing thebrittonbookgeek@gmail.com

This online course is all about rejection during the query process. Teaching is split between practical workshops and tips for dealing with the emotional fallout. It’s suitable for people writing any genre for any age group, and those at any point in the querying process – whether you have yet to query or have been at it for years, this is the course for you! Since spaces are limited, teaching can be tailored to each individual. I will speak from my own experience (find out a little bit about that here), and ask participants to be brutally honest. By the end of the course, you will be better equipped to deal with inevitable rejections BUT you will have renewed strength to keep going until you get your YES.

Week 1 – Rejection is rubbish, but you’re not alone

Week 2 – You are not a reject

Week 3 – Lessen the chances – letter workshop

Week 4 – Lessen the chances – synopsis workshop

Week 5 – ONWARDS (let’s make a plan)
