New Literary Agency:

The Oxford Editors is set to open its own Literary Agency led by Cherry Mosteshar

New Literary Agency around the corner:

The Oxford Editors, led be Cherry Mosteshar, has had great success with its Agent Finder Service, but there are still some books we believe in passionately, but with the crowded market many agents are not taking on new and unknown writers.

So what to do?

With so many publishers closed to direct submissions and agents reluctant to take on those not already famous for something, we are going to dip our toe into the Literary Agency world.

We will keep you posted.

Our founder, Cherry Mosteshar, believes that celebrities and those famous in other fields are taking up too much of the market and too little of the new talent we need and readers crave is being published, instead it is left at the bottom of the slush piles.

If you think you have a masterpiece then send your query letter, first three chapter and short synopsis of the chapters, marked for Cherry Mosteshar, to info@theoxfordeditors.co.uk

Next meeting

Please try to come to the Rose and Crown North Parade 7 for 7.30 on Wednesday for the new phase of our writing group. There are lots of great things in our future.

In the backroom if it is cold. They rarely make people pay the cover charge. In all these years they have never asked me for any money, but to cover it they accept what we spend on food and drink and they have good food anyway and excellend drink.

I am sick at home but Barbara will lead the readings.

Zooming again

We still have had no word from the new team at Blackwell’s, so for now we will stay online.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday April 6th.

This will be a 2-hour session with four members getting 30 minutes to read and get feedback. Please email me at info@theoxfordeditors.co.uk if you wish to read this time. We will have another session at the end of the month for those who miss out this time.

Back in action

Dear Writers at Blackwell’s,

It feels like a lifetime since we last met. I suggested we start meeting again on Zoom, and although I only have a personal version let’s try and see if a few of us can meet:

Just use the link below.

Cherry Mosteshar is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

🎄🎅🏽🎄🤶🏼🎄

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Please keep safe, and keep writing.

We have great holiday discounts at The Oxford Editors for members of group, so do get in touch.

We are hoping to have a Zoom meeting in January.

Please email me with your availability. I suggest the 2nd Thursday in January.

This year we will have two zoom meetings a month, and members will get 30-minute slots to read and get feedback. That means four pieces only at every meeting instead of everyone reading. You can learn as much from the mistakes and triumphs of others as you can from feedback on your work, so this should be positive for all.

Email me with dates or if you want editorial help to info@theoxfordeditors.co.uk.

All the best,

Cherry
