WHAT IS IT?
This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Detroit Livonia Novi. In other words, it’s one day full of classes and advice designed to give you the best instruction concerning how to get your writing & books published. We’ll discuss your publishing opportunities today, how to write queries & pitches, how to market yourself and your books, what makes an agent/editor stop reading your manuscript, and more. No matter what you’re writing — fiction or nonfiction — the day’s classes will help point you in the right direction. Writers of all genres are welcome.
This event is designed to squeeze as much into one day of learning as possible. You can ask any questions you like during the classes, and get your specific concerns addressed. We will have literary agents onsite to give feedback and take pitches from writers, as well. This year’s agent & editor faculty so far includes:
- literary agent Elaine Spencer (The Knight Agency)
- editor Lydia Sharp (Entangled Publishing)
- literary agent Ella Marie Shupe (Belcastro Agency)
- literary agent Elana Roth Parker (Laura Dail Literary)
- literary agent Vicki Selvaggio (Storm Literary)
- literary agent Bethany Morehead (Hartline Literary)
- literary agent Laura Crockett (TriadaUS Literary)
- literary agent Janna Bonikowski (The Knight Agency)
- and more to come.
By the end of the day, you will have all the tools you need to move forward on your writing journey. This independent event is organized by coordinator Jessica Bell of Writing Day Workshops, with assistance from local writing groups.
