Day Events

23 January 2018 Online Event

To celebrate the launch of Book Bound’s 2018 writing retreat and the exciting news that applications are open from Jan 9th we will be hosting a unique and free online event on Tuesday 23rd Jan at 20.30 called Secrets Of The Slush pile.

 In this free 60-minute session, the four Book Bound founders will give you an authentic sense of how the slush pile works by drawing on their many years’ experience as editors and publishers. We will critique submissions live and will offer you tips, including how to stand out and what mistakes to avoid.

Attendees of the webinar will be able to ask questions. We will also be recording the session so you can refer back to it for a limited time.

Those that are interested in having their submission critiqued are asked to submit a one-page query letter, plus the first page of their manuscript [300 words or less]. We cannot guarantee that every submission will be critiqued but to be in with a chance the materials must be submitted via email to bookboundretreat@gmail.com and received by 9.00 a.m. on 18th Jan 2018. Please include the materials in the body of the email, and use the subject header SUBMISSION FOR REVIEW.

You will need a Facebook account to watch this online event. It will be held on our Book Bound Facebook page. Once your place is confirmed, please sign up for free via Eventbrite so we can send technical instructions and updates a few days before the event.
