Creative writing student pitches to leading agents
A student on this year’s Creative Writing certificate at Vaughan College is to pitch his first novel to a panel of leading agents this weekend. Mark Wright’s book 'Rock a Bye Baby Blues', originally workshopped as part of the course, is the first work in his proposed Detective J T Ellington series.
Tomorrow (26 May) he will be pitching his novel to three leading literary agents at the Bristol Crimefest, one of the country’s largest books festivals. He’ll be facing the experienced representatives of three of the foremost agencies in crime fiction: Darley Anderson Literary TV & Film Agency, Wade & Doherty Literary Agency and DHH Literary Agency.
Mark has already been on BBC Radio Leicester and in the Leicester Mercury to talk about his book and his experience at Vaughan College. The College’s Certificate of Higher Education in Creative Writing has produced several published writers and award-winning titles, and we hope that Mark will be added to these lists very soon. Keep an eye on his Twitter page to find out.
