Chloe Seager grew up in Wanstead with her Mum and much-loved cat, Katie. She studied English Literature and Drama at the University of East Anglia where she sadly realised she couldn’t act, but did rediscover her love of children’s books. She is now an author for teens and her debut novel Editing Emma came out from HarperCollins in August. She also works as a YA/Children’s literary agent at Diane Banks Associates. You can find out more about her at chloeseager.com. She says:
A lot of aspiring writers don’t realise the importance of a literary agent, but publishers no longer accept unsolicited manuscripts and so to get published a writer must have a literary agent. The event will cover not only advice on writing, but will also offer industry perspective e.g. the current book market and tips on cover letters and how to catch a literary agent’s attention. Come along and get advice on every aspect of how to become a published writer.
* Saturday’s Jumble Trail now has 40 stalls signed up. Organiser Jane Clapton writes that the most successful stalls tend to be in streets where there are clusters of stalls. So anyone interested in these roads, where more stalls are needed to make a cluster, are particularly welcome: Langley Drive, Selsdon Road, Draycot Road, Nutter Lane, Addison Road, Rutland Road, Rectory Crescent, Victory Road, Halstead Road, Highstone Road.
