Novelist Norma Curtis - guest author on TOWARDS PUBLICATION

My new fiction course at the Friends Centre in Brighton starts after Easter on Monday afternoons and I want it to be a little different...
It is aimed at students who have either already attended a writing course - any time, any place - or who have been writing on their own and now want to share their work.
There will be imaginative class exercises of course, and assignments set, and plenty of opportunity to share work but I also want to look at the nitty gritty of getting published - the practical how-to stuff that maps the journey from dog earned notebook to the printed page.
While I can (and will) talk about my own experiences this was the perfect opportunity to invite guests authors along and I am delighted that Norma Curtis has said yes.
She is keen to talk about what publishers are looking for and she should know - not only is she the author of three novels, she is also vice chair of the Romantic Novelists Association
