Wannabe a writer - part 2

Part 2 of Jane Wenham-Jones's marvellous pilot TV show is now available to watch here.

You might remember in part 1 the very brave wannabe writer Delphine met top agent Carole Blake and got some hard-hitting but very useful feedback on her novel. In part 2 Delphine meets best-selling writer Katie Fforde, and picks up some tips and techniques on how to improve her novel for when she resubmits it to Carole. A must-see!

If you're interested in taking part in a possible series of this TV show, you can sign up on the website here.


Another, and possibly easier way to find an agent is to research them via this new website - LitFactor. You can search for agents, find their requirements and track your submissions all in one place. If you're at that stage with a novel it looks like a very useful site. Along with AgentHunter I'm thinking the old way of finding agents by thumbing through the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook is looking decidedly outdated!

Great to see Katie Fforde too having read so many of her brilliant novels.

All power to your elbow, or those typing fingers, Delphine. Can't wait for the next instalment! :o) x
