Shooting Star pub
A night with Agent Kate Burke, on the lookout for new authors.
Kate will join us at the table to hear your Cover Letters read aloud before the group. She's incredibly friendly so don't be nervous. I've asked her in to give constructive pointers on each letter in front of the group so we can all put our best letter forward, when the time comes.
Every letter will be unique but Kate sees 100s of them every week so she's able to see what's missing, how it could be strengthened etc.
If you have a letter ready and would like to read it out to Kate, please post a comment below. We'll have time for 9-12 letters (single-sided A4 only) with 5-10 mins spent on each one - this is a BIG opportunity so do ensure you have another person proofread the letter before you bring it to Kate - she's going to focus on the contents of the letter and tough to do that if it is littered with spelling/grammar mistakes.
I really hope you like the idea of this event and that you will want to join us!
