My Ly is a writer and a creative and passionate Marketeer based in London. When she can fit it in, she is also a TV/film extra, a jewellery designer and an imaginative cook. She was selected for the Curtis Brown Creative three-month novel writing course in 2015 and also for the The Writer’s Hotel in 2017, a one-week jam-packed New York writing conference where she pitched her novel idea to ten US literary agents and read out her first chapter to the open public in a New York speakeasy bar. As a regular attendee and networker at literary events, writing groups and writing retreats she enjoys learning, meeting fellow writers and publishing experts as well as helping people to connect. She is currently working on her debut novel.
