I’ll be leading our third Writer-in-Residence Workshop on September 29, at 1:00, at the Main Library, in our same beautiful meeting room with the soaring arched windows looking out over downtown. Here’s the blurb, in case you missed it:
The Big, Hairy World of Book Publication: Revisions, Agents, Queries, Editors
You’ve written a book manuscript! You’re done! Right? If only. This workshop will plunge into the often-scary, sometimes-hairy world of book publishing. How do you write a query letter? What is a literary agent and what do they do? We’ll discuss all aspects of the book publishing process from revision to editing to publication and publicity. Discussion will include both fiction and non-fiction. Bring your questions! Will include Q & A session for all stages of the writing journey.
During our previous workshops, I’d do a lot of talking and we’ve have just short periods for questions. My plan for this workshop is to have it be almost half Q & A – in my experience, people have a lot of questions about publishing and while I may not have a lot of answers, I will have some answers. That’s why it’s important you be there to ask those questions. Don’t leave me staring at the empty seats, clutching my notes. Y’all come!
Please note: this workshop is now full.
