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

November 17, 2021


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

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?

Justine Solomons, Director of Byte the Book will host this webinar. Her guests are Lisa Eveleigh and Andrew Lowe.
