About this event

For those hoping to be traditionally published, literary agents are the gatekeepers of the publishing world. Whether you are approaching agents for the first time or seeking to hone your existing submission package, this is a practical workshop addressing each element: cover letter, pitch, synopsis and your first three chapters. Also a guide to what to look for in an agent and how the process works. With Sophie Draper, author of the Derbyshire-set psychological thrillers, Cuckoo and Magpie. Tickets priced £12, booking essential.

Sophie Draper’s first book, Cuckoo, is a gothic psychological thriller set in Derbyshire. It won the Bath Novel Award 2017 and after its publication in 2018, hit the no 1 spot on the Bookseller’s Heatseekers List. Her second book, Magpie (pub. Nov 2019) also hit no 1 on the Heatseekers list and went on to reach no 11 in the Sunday Times bestseller paperback list.

Sophie is currently working on her third book and lives in rural Derbyshire where (as Sophie Snell) she also works as a traditional oral storyteller. In 2013, she was nominated for the British Awards for Storytelling Excellence as Outstanding Female Storyteller and in 2017, she won the prestigious Friday Night Live Award at the York Festival of Writing.
