LONDON WRITERS’ CLUB LIVE MONTHLY EVENTS
“Informative, insightful and fun. I would recommend any aspiring writer to pop along.”
Speechwriter for NATO Secretary General
Emma Finn is actively building her list of exciting new writers of both fiction and narrative non-fiction. On the fiction side, she read widely so doesn’t like to be too prescriptive, but loves novels that explore those moments that define our lives and collective experience: falling in or out of love; dealing with loss; navigating frailty, friendship, dysfunction or loneliness. And she’s drawn to novels about families, relationships of all kinds, that are sharply observed with a clever psychology.
Above all Emma is drawn to a strong voice, characters she wants to drop everything to spend time with and beautiful, confident writing that grabs you by the hand from the first page and pulls you headlong into a memorable story. She’s not particularly led by genre but is broadly on the lookout for literary / upmarket book group fiction, high concept novels and crime or thrillers driven by a compelling lead. Please note she doesn’t’ represent children’s or YA fiction.
Emma would also love to see great food writing, big ideas books that help us to think about the world today, pop science, memoir or life writing and narrative non-fiction of all kinds, although she’s particularly keen to find new writing on race, gender and sexuality.
