Literary Agent: Robert Caskie

Monday 5 July 2021

5:00 pm

6:00 pm



Join literary agent Robert Caskie to hear all about what an agent does and why every writer should have one. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask Robert questions during the session

This event will be informal, informative, fun and hopefully interesting! Robert Caskie will talk you though what an agent actually does and why as a writer you really did need one.  He’ll give you advice on how to approach an agent and how to choose one that is best for you.  He’ll share some publishing stories and gossip.  There will be plenty of opportunity for conversation and questions.  He’ll happily be led by questions in any area of publishing that people want to explore and find out more about.

This event will be a zoom meeting so participants will have the option to turn on their cameras and, when appropriate their mics, in order to interact with Robert and one another. If you would like to send Robert brief information on your writing background and anything you might like to have covered during the session, please email
