In this session, literary agent, Anya Goncharova, will share insights into what international editors are looking for in works submitted and provide information on how to prepare manuscripts for submission.
The programme will give an overview of the book publishing process, taking participants through the stages of the editorial considerations and decisions, as well as share tips on how to make sure their work stands out against the rest. Based on her own experience in the publishing industry, Anya will go over what agents who work with top international publishing houses are looking for and what happens to the manuscript once it is acquired by an editor.
Participants will be given the opportunity to talk about their own work, ask questions related to their submissions and to give each other feedback of their own experiences.
