Saturday, January 21, 1-3pm
Open to all.
Limited to 25 participants.
This is the first of two workshops to be offered in 2023 on the theme of getting published. Watch for a longer interactive workshop in the fall.
A veteran of Canada’s book industry will demystify how the publishing process works, from acquisitions to the finished product to how books get into the market. He will explain the importance of the pitch letter in finding a publisher or agent, why hitting deadlines is paramount to successful publishing, and the dual roles of the marketing department and the author’s input in creating a bestseller. He will also share his thoughts on literary agents—and how to find a publisher without one—in a nuts and bolts seminar on the arcane world of book publishing.
This workshop will take place via Zoom.
