Most writers dream of publishing a book with a hard cover, amazing cover art, and their photo on the dust jacket. But how do we get there? In this seminar, we will discuss various paths to publishing–the successes, the failures, and even more of the failures. We will learn strategies for presenting our stories to magazines, agents, and publishers, from choosing the best agency for your work to developing an attention grabbing query letter. We will also discuss specific markets for different genres, as well as how to make your writing stand out to potential readers and editors.
