So you’ve always wanted to write a book

It is often said there is book in all of us - just waiting to be written.

Do you have a story you are desperately wanting to tell?

Perhaps you are already working on your biography, or a first novel?

Then you could benefit from attending a special event, organised by the English department at UCS next week, titled How to Get Published.

The special event is at 1pm in the UCS Watefront Building, Ipswich on Wednesday May 7.

It is open to all writers at all stages of their careers, and entry is free.

This is a chance to join literary agent Rachel Calder of the Sayle Literary Agency and Liz Calder, founder-director of Bloomsbury Publishing and Full Circle Editions, for some first-hand experience and up-to-date advice on how to become a published writer.

With a wealth of experience between them, Liz and Rachel will take you through the essential first steps to writing a book, finding an agent or publisher, and establishing a career in writing.

Liz Calder, fournder-director of Bloomsbury Publishing, has worked with some very successful and award-winning authors over the years from Salman Rushdie and John Irving to Anita Brookner, Nadine Gordimer and Will Self.

Liz Calder was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by University Campus Suffolk in 2012.

Last year her Full Circle Editions, which is Suffolk based, produced the FlipSide Festival of Brazilian literature, art and music at Snape Maltings/

FlipSide 2014 is in October this year.

Gill Lowe of the English Deparment at UCS said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone to find out more about publishing from both an agent and a publisher.

“I think it will be a really good event.

“Liz is a great speaker. and she has worked with some tremendous authors.”

The event is at 1 pm at the UCS Waterfont Building, Neptune Quay, Ipswich.
