The Write Stuff - The London Book Fair

The Write Stuff

  • The Write Stuff

    Taking place in Author HQ, this Dragon’s Den-style panel event sees six authors pitch their books to a panel of literary agents in front of the Author HQ audience for the chance to win a follow up meeting with an agent.

    The 2018 panel of judges included representatives from Felicity Bryan Associates, Jo Unwin Literary Agency, Marjacq, MBA and Peters Fraser & Dunlop

    Each year, we see this event growing increasingly popular, as the success stories from previous attendees mount!

    How does it work?

    Authors have three minutes each to pitch – to introduce themselves and present their work. The judging panel will then provide on-the-spot feedback to each pitch, as well as the authors’ writing, having received in advance of the competition sample chapters of each finalist’s work.

    How to enter

    2018 Entries are now closed. Please check back later for LBF 2019 entry dates.

  • 2018 Winner – Michele Sagan

    After much deliberation, the judges awarded this year’s Write Stuff prize to Michele Sagan, who pitched her psychological thriller A Coffin Full of Lies.  Michele chose to have her follow up meeting with literary agent Julia Silk, MBA. Congratulations to Michele, and all the authors who took part.
