From Idea to Bookshelf: How Novels get Published

19.15 – 21.00 Thursday, October 3rd

Whether you’re an aspiring writer, an enthusiastic reader of fiction, or just curious about how publishing works, come and discover the secrets of the trade at this exciting Q&A event organised by South East London Authors.

Over 90 minutes, a panel of four successful working novelists will tackle all your questions. How does the spark of an idea become a finished manuscript? Who decides what gets published? How do you make your novel stand out? Do writers need agents? How important is a good editor? What makes a bestseller? Is self-publishing a good idea? Has digital publishing changed the way the business works?

Practical advice and industry insights from Emma Darwin, Tamsin Grey, Marianne Kavanagh &Brian Keaney. The event will be chaired by Antonia Senior, Times reviewer (and author of historical fiction, most recently The Tyrant’s Shadow) and will be supported by Dulwich Books.

Doors open at 7:15 for a 7:30pm start.
Location: Bell House, 27 College Road, Dulwich, SE21 7BG
Tickets cost £10, or £5 for those 25 or under (As on all Bell House events, bursary tickets are available. Please email for more information)
