ONLINE Manuscript Submission Workshop
Typing “The End” is just the beginning of manuscript submission. Revision and editing, researching fiction markets, publishers and agents, creating your pitch and synopsis, and schmoozing, are just a few of the skills you should develop before submitting your manuscript. You’ll also need to consider the best publishing route for your project (Big Pub, Small Press, Indie), contracts, and career planning. And: book blurbs, back cover copy, launches, awards, and financial management. This short, one-day-workshop will touch on multiple areas briefly, raising questions for you to consider as you take your manuscript to the next level.
This is an interactive course using the Zoom web conferencing platform.
