How publishing works - workshop in Los Angeles

When you have finished your novel, what do you do with it? When you have a good idea for a book, how do you take it further? In this workshop, we will explore the process of agent submission and publication for both fiction and non-fiction.

Further, each attendee will get personal feedback on submission material (a one-page synopsis and a one-page query letter, if brought to the session) OR a chance to discuss their unique pitch in order to strengthen its position.

In this 1-day workshop, you will learn:

  • How to identify your readership
  • How to research and approach literary agents
  • How to formulate a query letter
  • Best practice for writing arresting and pithy synopses
  • How to make your sample chapters stand out, and ensure agents request the complete ms
  • What to expect from the publishing process: advances, royalties, lead times, cover design, marketing, and publicity.

All are welcome: those with a manuscript and those just starting out.
