Pitch Perfect: Querying and Other Paths to Publishing, with Susanne Dunlap
You’ve finished your manuscript (or almost, anyway). Congratulations! Now it’s time to think about how you’ll get it into readers’ hands. This workshop will address query letters to agents for traditional publishing and the basics of how to write a synopsis of your entire book. We’ll also explore the benefits and pitfalls of hybrid and self-publishing—which can be a perfectly valid way to get your book out into the world. Finally, we’ll weigh the pros and cons of all paths to publishing.
Saturday, May 15, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
