Join us for the final workshop in our editing series! Now that you have a great looking manuscript, you’re ready for the next step. Learn how your editor can guide you in securing an agent or publication. You'll also see important documents that will help you to publish and sell your book or article, such as query letters, synopses, book proposals, and writing samples. We will look at examples and have an opportunity to discuss them with other participants.
What You’ll Learn: The handful of documents needed to sell a book or article, including approaches to finding agents and publishers
Come at 4:30pm to mingle and chat with the instructor, grab a drink or snacks, then grab a seat. We'll start sharply at 5pm to learn about editing.
