Agents get in on the workshop market

Following in Faber's money-making (presumably) footsteps, Curtis Brown literary agency

Curtis Brown Creative is a new creative writing school run by the Curtis Brown Literary Agency. We’ll be running our first three-month novel-writing course from May-July this year, to be taught by me and novelist Jake Arnott.

Curtis Brown Creative is the first and only creative writing school to be run by a leading literary agency. For our initial 3-month novel-writing course we aim to draw on our expertise to help 15 new writers shape vibrant debut novels for today’s competitive marketplace.

It will run from Thursday May 5th until Thursday July 21st 2011 at Curtis Brown’s central London offices, with weekly creative writing workshops on Thursday evenings and five extra evening sessions featuring external speakers and individual mentoring.

We welcome applications from writers working on or just starting writing a novel.

The course fee of £1,600 per student is payable, in full, by bank transfer or cheque. Funds must reach our bank account by April 4th 2011 at the latest.
How do I apply for this novel-writing course?

Your applications must comprise:

Your completed application form
The opening chapter or approximately 3,000 words from the start of your novel-in-progress
A one-page synopsis of your novel.

Applications must be received no later than Tuesday March 1st 2011.
