Editor-in-Residence with Federico Andornino

Tuesday 14 July to Friday 21 August 2020



Thanks to the support of Cork County Council we are delighted to offer participants this online event at 50% of our normal fee.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to speak with an experienced literary editor by booking an ONLINE one-to-one session with our editor-in-zoom Federico Andornino who will discuss and appraise your work. Once you have booked a slot with our editor you will be invited to submit a sample of your work via email – no more than four pages of A4 double-spaced – and a cover letter describing briefly the context for the writing sample, your writing background and specifics you might like addressed in the session.

Each session will take place “face-to-face” on Zoom and will last 45 minutes. The sessions will take place on various dates during July and August. See our full list of slots here.

Instructions for participants will be emailed on purchase. And we’re here to support anyone with any questions – simply email us with your query.
