ONLINE 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 — in this interactive webinar, we’ll tackle all your questions (so please bring them!) and separating realistic expectations from discouraging myths.
This is an interactive workshop using the Zoom web conferencing platform.
