Brighton writing conference Write by the Beach returns for a weekend of talks, workshops and inspiration.

Held over the weekend of April 1-2, Write by the Beach brings together a host of industry insiders including agents, publishers and writers, all discussing how to write and how to get published.

Each day will see six amazing sessions discussing all aspects of the writing process.

A spokesperson said: ”We will help you with writing the perfect pitch, how to decide on the right form of publishing for you, honing your style, getting your script on air and so much more.

“We have a host of industry experts delivering each session, including bestselling writers such as CL Taylor, Rowan Coleman, Tamsyn Murray and

Julie Cohen, TV and radio royalty such as Sue Teddern (Radio 4), Pete Lawson (Eastenders) and Karen Rose (Sweet Talk Productions), top agents such as Louise Burns from Andrew Mann, Rebecca Carter from Janklow and Nesbit, Camilla Wray from Darley Anderson, David Headley from

DHH and Jemima Forrester from David Higham Associates, publishers such as Candida Lacey from Myriad, Xander Cansell from Unbound and Matthew Smith from Urbane.

“New to this year’s conference we are also offering every single delegate the amazing opportunity to pitch their work to an industry insider. “Each delegate will get 10 minutes sitting opposite a top agent, publisher or commissioner.

“And if you come on both days you get two chances to pitch to two different insiders.”

The five writers behind the event are Bridget Whelan, Kate Harrison, Erinna Mettler, Laura Wilkinson and Araminta Hall.

The event is hosted at Angel House on Hove seafront, the day runs from 10am-5pm and includes tea, coffee and a delicious lunch. Tickets can be bought for one or both days,
