LONDON WRITERS’ CLUB LIVE MONTHLY EVENTS

“Informative, insightful and fun. I would recommend any aspiring writer to pop along.”
Mark Morris
Speechwriter for NATO Secretary General

 

When:

January 22  6.30-8.30pm (speaker on at 6.45pm, followed by Q&A and networking)

Speaker: 

Alice Lutyens of Curtis Brown

At:

Adam House, Adam Street, London WC2N 6AA

Alice is lucky enough to represent a wonderfully eclectic and talented list of authors, varying from on-topic commercial women’s fiction to beautifully lyrical literary fiction to a full-blooded historical saga to the very best of crime. She is always on the look-out for really smart new fiction, whether it be commercial or offbeat. Alice does not believe in ‘commercial or literary’, but instead believes simply in jolly good writing.

Alice adores crime and thrillers with a cosy/family or very unusual element to them. She is also keen to expand her non-fiction list. Her taste is on the personal side; think Henry Marsh DO NO HARM and I AM I AM I AM by Maggie Farrell. Most important is a strong and compelling narrative strand. At the moment, she is also focusing on finding a fantastic ghost novel – think Woman In Black and also something to make a reader feel warm inside – think One Day. Alice is happy to be contacted via email with submissions directly relating to her current wish list.

She is particularly keen to work with writers from the start of their careers and handles a number of successful authors whom she has nursed through from their debut novels. She is very proud to represent some of our Curtis Brown Creative students, such as Kate Hamer, Jane Harper and Catherine Bennetto. It is a privilege to work with authors from the earliest of days.
