WRITE NOW LIVE- RANDOM HOUSE #essentialsofrec
Or Wolverhampton's answer to James Patterson?
If so, we'd love to meet you.
We want to find, mentor and publish new writers with different stories to tell. Writers from communities under-represented on the nation’s bookshelves.
Books and publishing do not reflect the society we live in. That's why we've set up WriteNow in partnership with writer development charities Spread the Word, Writing West Midlands and Commonword.
Together we will host 150 writers at one of three insight days in London (Saturday 1 October 2016), Birmingham (Saturday 26 November 2016) and Manchester (Saturday 4 February 2017). During the day you'll hear everything you need to know about getting published, from authors, literary agents and Penguin Random House staff as well as getting one-to-one feedback on your book from one of our editors.
After getting to know you and your work, we'll ask 10 exceptional writers to join our new year-long mentoring programme. While there are no guarantees, ultimately we would love to publish these 10 writers.
We are Penguin Random House, the UK's biggest publisher. We connect the world with the stories, ideas and writing that matter.
We publish the very best books across all genres, including award-winning commercial and literary fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and classics. Our authors range from Dorothy Koomson to Caitlin Moran; Roald Dahl to Zadie Smith.
