FREE | So you want to be a writer?

February 16, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

So you want to be a writer?
Would you like to be a writer? Have you ever wondered where authors get their ideas and inspiration? How do you get published?

About this event

We are delighted to be joined virtually at Central Saint Michael’s Sixth Form by Kate Mallinder, author of teen feel-good books Summer of No Regrets and Asking for a Friend. She is published by Firefly Press, represented by Hannah Sheppard at DHH Literary Agency and has recently been awarded an MA in Writing for Young People.

Kate will talk about her journey to publication, the highs and lows of the writing world and how to set out on your own journey. She’ll cover discovering your own writing style, finding a literary agent or a publisher, where to find inspiration and how to write a book! There will be time to ask questions so, whether you’re considering being a writer or it’s something that’s never crossed your mind, come along and find out what it’s all about.

This event will take place online via zoom. Once you’ve registered you will receive confirmation about how to access the event on the day. We look forward to you joining us for what promises to be an interesting view of what it means to work as a writer.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
