Breakfast Byte The Book Agent Tables - Speed Pitching to Agents at The Groucho Club (April)


Since 2012 Byte the Book has been at the very forefront of the publishing industry, running amazing events at the best venues in London and at book fairs around the world. Our primary aims are to educate authors and publishers on the latest developments in the book world and to help our community make valuable connections with each other and across the publishing industry. You can see some reports on recent events here and here.

One of the key things our members ask about again and again is wanting to meet agents, so we're really excited to announce the launch of our agent tables events.

The third of these will be on Wednesday 10th April 2019 at The Groucho Club, Soho, and we are asking for submissions by Monday 18th March 2019 (see submission guidelines below for you to follow once you have booked your ticket).**

Think, eighteen authors, six agents plus a light breakfast at the Groucho Club, with each author submitting their work first and getting the opportunity to take two of the thirty-six slots on the day to meet privately with two agents each who have read their work

Tickets are £50* for Byte The Book and Groucho members and £85* for non-members.
