You’re ready to go! You have or soon will have a finished project ready for the world. Now what? This session will deal with the tricky business of getting an agent and editor interested in your project. We will break down the intimidating “behind the scenes” of the publishing world, so you can have a deeper understanding of the true ins and outs of publishing. This behind the scenes tour will include a range of helpful insights—from the best approach for getting an agent to what editors are really saying about you and your book, to the realities of the marketplace and how you can put your best foot forward.

This session will also include fun and helpful exercises, such as “Can you spot the bestseller?” We will review query letters and pitches so you can leave the session equipped to successfully write your own. We will discuss common mistakes, road blocks, and pitfalls writers should avoid as you navigate this process. You can expect to leave the session armed with lasting knowledge and approaches that will improve your chances on the road to publication.

If you're still working on your manuscript, make sure to check out part one of this series, Act Like A Writer, Think Like An Editor: Getting Your Manuscript Ready, which meets earlier in the day! 

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
