Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join the Bristol Group on Friday 2 September from 12pm for their next online session. We’ll be joined by literary agent, Kate Hordern. She will talk about the role of agents, what publishers expect from authors they take on, and explain the differences between a trade publisher and a digital first publisher. She will offer tips and advice for building your career as a published author and balancing published work with writing for pleasure and personal development.

Kate Hordern set up her eponymous literary agency KHLA in 1999 in Bristol, prior to which she worked in the Rights Department at publishers Victor Gollancz (now part of the Orion Publishing Group) for fourteen years, becoming Foreign Rights Director and selling translation rights. KHLA represents a range of fiction and non-fiction.
