Note: This seminar focuses on non-fiction.
Literary agents can be an extremely valuable ally in a writer’s career. They open doors to a publisher’s office, are usually fierce negotiators, and look out for the best interests of their clients. But getting their attention isn’t easy and agents have a long list of reasons why they don’t offer a contract for representation. This seminar examines that list and offers suggestions and exercises you can do to make your pitch and proposal much more tantalizing and salable. This seminar also looks at how authors can find success in this increasingly complicated publishing world.
