The London Book Fair (LBF), UK’s biggest gathering of international publishers and agents, has opened bookings for its Agent One-to-One program, which takes place at LBF’s Author HQ – the area of the fair dedicated to established as well as aspiring writers.
The Agent One-to-One meetings will take place across the three days of the book fair, with authors having an opportunity to talk directly to an agent from leading literary agencies about their books, seek advice about any stage of the writing process, and receive direct feedback on pitches and ideas.
Participating agents this year include representatives from Curtis Brown, AM Heath, HHB, Eve White, LBA, The BKS Agency, United Agents, The Blair Partnership, Gold Leaf Literary, Peters Fraser & Dunlop, Kate Barker, Andlyn, and C&W. Between them, the agents’ areas of interest cover everything from children’s publishing, middle grade and YA, to SF and fantasy, as well as literary fiction, commercial fiction, historical fiction and crime thrillers. Narrative non-fiction and memoir are also covered.
Meetings are by appointment only and need to be booked in advance of the fair and to ensure that the visitors are matched with an agent that specializes in their genre of writing, it is important to view their schedule before booking. The cost of the tickets is £25.
Author HQ, one of the most popular features of the fair, will have plenty on offer for both established and aspiring writers, including a three-day seminar program with industry experts and authors taking to the stage to share their expertise and experience. All Author HQ events are free to attend with the purchase of a three-day pass, which is required to access the London Book Fair.
