Members Webinar: How to Deal with Editorial Advice and Understanding Your Genre, with Lisa Eveleigh

October 13, 2021

Find out how to respond to editorial feedback to your work and identify your genre, with Literary Agent Lisa Eveleigh.

When working with an agent and publisher, or teaming up with an editor, it’s vitally important that you are able to respond to feedback and edit your work. How do you pick the right people to work with and what’s the process like?  Genre is also a way that the book trade understands your work and works out how to sell you to readers. How do you identify the genre you’re writing in and why is it important to fit within the tropes of that genre? Can you write against type and what does that mean for the eventual publication and readership of your book?

Lisa Eveleigh will be the host of this member's webinar. Lisa Eveleigh began her career at A P Watt, the world’s oldest literary agency, after working as a researcher at the BBC.  She was not only the first woman -  but the first person - in A P Watt’s history -  to progress from assistant to the director. Lisa now runs Richford Becklow, established in 2011.  Her interests are in literary and commercial fiction, biography, and memoir. You can find out more about her on her website
