Here are the best events to set you on the path to print

There’s an entire weekend of inspiration at Brighton Dome between 19-21 November. In between talks by Bonnie Greer and Lionel Shriver, newly published authors will be available and Catherine O’Flynn will take questions on how she went from having her manuscript rejected by scores of publishers to winning the Costa First Novel Award. From £8; Brightondome.com

A great agent can send a writer into the stratosphere. Meet two of the best at the excellent London Writers’ Club events. On 16 November Francesca Main of Simon & Shuster takes the floor for questions, and on January 25th it’s the turn of Caroline Hardman of the Christopher Little Literary Agency. £10; Londonwritersclub.com

On 13 November join Malaysian-born, London based writer Francesca Beard for an innovative creative writing workshop. London Tales is inspired by the Canterbury Tales, and uses Londoners' own stories to create a poetic map of the city. £20; spreadtheword.org.uk

Need an ideas jump-start? On 3 November the London School of Journalist is running a three-day creative writing crash course. Tutor Andrew Taylor will take you through characterisation, plot, genres and all important business relationships within the industry. £325; lsj.org

One final date for your diary - come back to stylist.co.uk on 2 November to enter our unique microfiction competition.
