Julian Friedmann

Julian is a longstanding partner in the Blake-Friedmann literary agency.

He will talk on the current state, and likely future direction, of both literary agencies and publishing in general. The explosion in those writing, or trying to write, together with self-publishing as e-books, have undermined old certainties. Where do we go from here?
You can watch his presentation "The mystery of storytelling" on TEDxEaling.

Novelist Megan Hunter ‘in conversation’ with Mary Buckley


Friday 10th March 2017, 6pm-7pm, Pavilion Room

Come along to hear debut novelist Megan Hunter ‘in conversation’ with Senior Member Mary Buckley talking about her book The End We Start From (Picador, May 2017) and her writing career.

The book is described by the publisher as ‘a story of new motherhood in a terrifying setting: a familiar world made dangerous and unstable, its people forced to become refugees’.

It has received glowing early endorsements from authors such as Jim Crace, Evie Wyld and Tracey Chevalier, and was recently described by The Bookseller as ‘a very exciting debut from a hugely talented young writer… a stunning achievement’.

This event is open to everyone. Please register via the Eventbrite page. More here.
