Are you a Creative Writing student or graduate?

 Or are you just interested in pursuing a career in creative writing? 

Would you like the opportunity to make connections with the publishing/commissioning world? 

Is the prospect of making these connections daunting?

Comma Press invite you to the third annual Creative Writing Graduate Fair at Manchester Metropolitan University, in partnership with The Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University. 


Taking place on Friday 3rd November 2017, this fair is committed to providing participants with a unique introduction to the publishing industry and its professionals. This whole day event will run from 8.30am, when registration opens, until 5.45pm, when the pitching sessions will come to a close. The day will officially kick off at 9:15am, once everyone has been registered.

Building upon a brilliant line-up of authors, agents, and editors, we’ve designed a bigger and better fair to tailor to every type of writer: you can watch a keynote speech from a leading author; get expert advice on how to pitch to an agent; attend panel sessions and workshops on a broad range of topics; and get one-to-one pitching sessions with leading industry professionals.
