I am delighted to tell you that I have been invited to be part of the International Visitors programme at the immense International Festival Of Authors in Toronto which runs from 19th to 26th of October. I am arriving, along with a number of other agents and editors and scouts on the 23rd and staying for a week. In addition to an opportunity to visit a multitude of unique events featuring writers from all over the world those of us on the IV programme will also have some high-level access to all areas of the Canadian publishing scene. I will be blogging the events as they happen exclusively for The View From Here.
