Launch of Novel Fair 2020

Irish Writers Centre, Thursday 21st March 2019

Budding novelists, get ready: the launch of Novel Fair 2020 is here!

The Novel Fair is an Irish Writers Centre initiative which connects up-and-coming writers to top publishers and literary agents, giving novelists the unique opportunity to bypass the dreaded manuscript slush pile, to pitch their ideas and place their synopsis and sample chapters directly into the hands of venerate publishers and agents.

This event marks the beginning of the Novel Fair 2020 submissions period which will remain open for six months. Join former finalist Kealan Ryan, Sean Campbell from Epoque Press and a former Novel Fair judge Catherine Dunne to get the inside track about how the Fair works.

This is a must for anyone who has ever dreamed of getting a novel published!
