How To Have Fun At Work with Lynne Parker


Write that book with Morwenna Loughman and Samantha Baines

Season 1, Ep. 23

Everybody has a story to tell but how many of us get this into book form? Lynne Parker picks the brains of literary agent and publishing consultant, Morwenna Loughman, and comedian, broadcaster and author of two children’s books, Samantha Baines. From performing stand up and harnessing a disability to getting a book deal, what does it take to get published?  A look at the practical elements of negotiating advances, editing and developing an idea on both sides of the literary fence plus a look at everything from the traditional approach to maverick tactics. And, as hundreds of new books written during lockdown are published ahead of the festive season, how do we navigate those worth reading, support new writing talent and fill the coffers of independent booksellers.
