ClassYou’ve Finished Your Book; Now What?
The publishing process can be confusing and intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Each published writer goes through the same process; somewhere along the way, they just asked for help. That's what this class aims to do: help you take the next step with your manuscript with confidence. The day will start with an overview of the publishing process and how to find an agent and a discussion on what makes a query letter successful. We'll get into the weeds here, talking about everything you should be sure to cover (or avoid). We'll break for food, and you'll each have an individual conference with me during lunch. When we come back, we'll talk about what makes a first page successful—you'll have time to work on yours—and discuss what happens after you land an agent. We'll end the day with a Q&A.
