Lucy Atkins & Judith Murray/ How to Get Published Wednesday 19th March, 7pm-9pm Lucy Atkins, award-winning journalist and debut novelist will be appearing at Blackwell’s Bookshop at 7pm on Wednesday 19th March. Her novel, The Missing One, was published in January by Quercus.
Lucy and literary agent Judith Murray of Greene and Heaton will be discussing the process of getting your book published: what do agents and editors do? How do you find an agent? How does a book evolve from first idea to published novel? Can self-publishing really work? Are creative writing courses useful? They will also discuss the evolution of The Missing One from first submission to publication.
It might be interesting to read the book before the event so you can grill Judith on what it was about it that made her take Lucy on as a client.
This is a Group 2012 event but is open to all. If you are not a member of Group 2012 tickets are £3 and are available from our Customer Services Department. Please telephone 01865 333623.
I started The Oxford Editors in 2007 to help writers at every stage and in every genre. We have a strong academic tradition as well as working with writers of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We also help children's writers, playwrights, screen writers and business writers.
We offer a wide set of services for writers from mentoring, manuscript assessment, copy editing, proof reading, ghost writing, query letter writing, literary agent search, and much more. We will write your blog for you, perfect that speech or help you self-publish that book. If you write, our team of published authors, publishing industry experts and academics can help you.
I am an award-winning writer and editor working on academic, non-fiction and fiction manuscripts. I regularly work with fiction and children’s writers as well as doctoral students. I have also edited books and papers for academics throughout the world, and for many authors at publishers including Oxford University Press, Harvard University Press and Yale University Press. I have also guided many writers of fiction to publishing success. I am an author, ghost writer and an international journalist. After the publication of my book, Unveiled: Love and Death Among the Ayatollahs, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei condemned me as ‘a notorious man-hater’ for the book’s strong attack on the violation of women’s rights in Iran.
I also work with writers as a mentor and I have guided authors of fiction, non-fiction and academic works. My latest book, a crime thriller, will be published soon.
I worked for many years at The Financial Times, The Independent and The Guardian and has been a regular contributor to The Economist. I have also written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The South China Morning Post and many other newspapers and magazines worldwide. I have appeared on the BBC – including Radio 4’s the Today programme and on Newsnight.
I have edited several major academic studies, and also edited books by professors at Oxford and Harvard – among others. As well as writing fiction for adults and children. I have also written several screenplays.
