Cork World Book Fest 2023 is now accepting submissions for the very popular First Page Pitch.
To submit please email as an attachment a two line/50 word pitch describing your book and the first 500 words of your book to firstname.lastname@example.org
A panel of expert booklovers will choose 10 for the authors to read out loud for feedback from our agents (Or if you're shy, Sam Blake will read them). It is incredibly useful to hear pitches and the openings of books and what the agents think of them - tune in to perfect your own approach, find out what works and what doesn't!
The readings and feedback will take place on Saturday April 22 at Cork City Library, Grand Parade.
Closing date for submissions is 5.00 pm Friday March 31, 2023.
The C-Pen is a pocket-sized reading pen that reads text out loud with a human-like digital voice and is designed to promote independent learning.
Those with dyslexia, or difficulty with reading or pronunciation, those learning languages or with vision problems will find the pens extremely helpful pieces of technology.
Each branch in the City Library network has a C-Pen Reader that may be used in-branch. Contact your Local Library for more Information.
