Let’s Talk: Non-Fiction Writing

Event details

Thursday 30th Nov 2023


Are you thinking about turning your specialist subject into a book with broad appeal? Do you want to delve into a fascinating family story? Or perhaps you have an idea for the next cutting-edge polemic that will get everyone talking?

Whether you’re interested in writing memoir, history, smart thinking, nature, or one of the many myriad categories of non-fiction, this event will give you the boost you need to take the next steps.

In this friendly, introductory online webinar for writers of all levels, our expert industry panellists will share their insights into non-fiction publishing, from both a creative and business perspective. You’ll hear from editor and author Josephine Greywoode, literary agent Sophie Lambert, author and journalist Zing Tsjeng, and journalist and podcaster Hannah MacInnes. Take some time to explore your creativity and come away with the confidence and knowledge to channel it into writing compelling non-fiction.
