We’re delighted to welcome Jenny Savill back to Scotland (she studied in St Andrews) for what promises to be a fantastic half day presentation and workshop on ‘When To Press Send’.

Over to Jenny…

You’ve worked long and hard on your manuscript and you think it’s ready to submit – but how can you be certain that it is?  Is it enough to have read it and re-read it until you can’t really see it anymore?  (Answer: absolutely no, and if this is you, you need to attend this workshop!).

Before you press SEND, I will show you how to pause, take a breath, and properly assess the readiness of your manuscript. You will leave with a detailed check-list of things to attend to before submitting, to give your manuscript the best possible chance out there in agent-land. I will also provide practical help – through individual and group exercises – and will also focus on the drafting of your cover letter, blurb and synopsis. Invaluable to anyone who suspects they might be ready to submit to an agent, but is hesitating.
