Breaking into Traditional Publishing
Securing literary representation is a hell of a marathon. It’s rigorous, emotionally draining, and 99% interminable waiting. But here’s the good news: the only requirement is your own stubborn tenacity. Talent’s entirely learnable, and in this biz? You only fail if you quit.
So if inking a traditional book deal is your writerly goal, join us for an unflinching deep dive into the process of becoming agented. Knowing when you’re “ready” to pitch, query letters, synopses, strategies — we’re tackling all your questions, critiquing materials, and separating realistic expectations from discouraging myths.
Please bring writing materials and — if able — any of the following,: query letter, synopsis, and/or manuscript fist page.
Open to all levels but ideal for writers on the cusp of querying.
