How the pandemic taught me to be brave

Fellowship Event / Online


Online via Zoom

  • Enterprise

We’re continuing the series bringing RSA Fellows in the South West of England and What Next? West Chapter community together online to connect, check in and to hear from different speakers. 

Join us on 13 July, where our speaker will be Gill McLay FRSA.  Gill is a literary agent and event organiser based in Bath. Her work as a literary agent with the Bath Literary Agency sees her working with authors and illustrators to carve out their careers and find their publishing homes. 

In the session, Gill will share with you some of the lessons she has learnt during the pandemic and how, in the face of adversity, her literary agency has grown more than any other year. Turning her creativity to her methodology and goals she identified that in this challenging time there would be some huge opportunities if we were only brave enough to take them.  

As ever there will also be an opportunity to ask questions and potentially get involved. Everyone is welcome, Fellows and non-Fellows. 

Upon registering, you'll receive a confirmation email with a Zoom link needed to join the event.
