Ever wondered what editors want from writers? Our special Facebook event Lunch with Sam Cooney is your chance to ask.  Sam, incoming editor of The Lifted Brow and experienced editor across a range of genres and publications, will be on hand to answer your questions about finding a market for your work.

Who is Sam? Sam is not only the current editor of The Lifted Brow, but also a writer, publisher, manuscript assessor, guest commissioning editor, proofreader, copyeditor, copywriter, and tweeter.  He has worked as a reader and editor at Voiceworks, Overland, and Sleepers Almanacs.  A regular festival-goer, Sam has reviewed for some Melbourne Fringe Festival shows, worked with the Melbourne Writer’s Festival, and hosted panels at the Emerging Writer’s Festival and the National Young Writer’s Festival. 

How can you talk to Sam? Directly on our Facebook page.
When can you talk to Sam? Wednesday 16 May from 12pm to 1pm.
If you can’t be there, send us a message on Facebook with ‘lunchwithsam’ as the subject and your question, or tweet us your questions @AWMonline and hashtag it #lunchwithsam.
Also, to help us thank Sam, please tweet or send us your all-time favourite word. To find out more info, go to the AWM Facebook page and check out the Events.
And, as a reward for reading this far, we have some special insider news about The Lifted Brow: they are currently calling for submissions and have their massive relaunch issue due out in September.  If you’ve missed them lately, that’s because they’ve been on hiatus.  But don’t worry, they’re still publishing web-only content.
