Writers' Corner / An invite from Stephen King's UK editor...
« on: August 11, 2011, 08:42:48 PM »
Hi all,

I've been discussing the plans for Get Writing with Philippa Pride, Stephen King's UK editor and also known as The Book Doctor. She asked me to share this with you, I hope you don't mind:

Dear Friends of Sandra
Would you or any of your friends or clients like to come to France this September?  We are gathering at a gorgeous farmhouse in the Dordogne from 10-15 September for the next Book Doctor writing course.
It will be a wonderful opportunity to free your creativity, start or continue your book and gather some insider tips for getting it published.
For more information, contact me at philippapride@yahoo.co.uk and click on the animated gif below to go through to my website www.thebookdoctor.co.uk and on the YouTube to see a short video with me;  I'm a certified NLP Coach and Stephen King's British editor.
There are just three rooms left now.
With best wishes from Philippa
Canalot Studios: Philippa Pride

For some background, this is her biog for GW:

Philippa is a writing coach, publishing consultant and book editor and runs workshops in which she combines inspirational exercises for freeing creativity with the nuts and bolts of getting published.  A former commissioning editor with a major publishing house, PHILIPPA PRIDE has worked with some of the most successful writers today, including world superseller Stephen King who knows of  ‘no-one in the writing and publishing business who is better equipped to talk about and teach the art and craft of writing’.  

Described by Hodder’s MD as ‘a talented spotter of new fiction, a creative editor and a terrific champion of her authors’, Philippa continues her connection with Hodder & Stoughton as Stephen King’s British editor and has branched out into coaching; she is a certified NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Coach.  

I can assure you that Philippa is the most genuine lady, totally encouraging and supportive and truly inspiring. I'm hoping to book up for the next course, which will be after GW. And, of course, if you can get to the UK she will be running a workshop for us and taking some One to Ones - not to be missed!

Writers' Corner / Get Writing 2012

Hi everyone,

I've not been very active on here the last few weeks because I've been grafting. Not on my WIP as much as I'd like but on the organisation of next year's Get Writing event, which I'm organising on behalf of the Verulam Writers' Circle.

I wanted to let you know first because there will be plenty that will be of interest to fantasy and SF writers. If you are able to make it to Hertfordshire in the UK on February 11th 2012 you'll be glad you did because the event will be packed with workshops, pitch and book doctor sessions and loads of networking opportunities with some very important publishing people.

Pencil the date in your diary, lots more detail coming soon!   8)
