You hear me talk a lot on this blog about the writers’ conferences I attend and the presentations I give on agents and pitching. Well, if you’ve ever wanted to attend such a conference but can’t because of money or proximity issues, here is your chance to listen in and ask questions from your computer at home!
I’m teaching a webinar at 1 p.m. EST, Thursday, Oct. 8 on “How to Land a Literary Agent.”
Here’s the gist:
You’ve finished your masterpiece. It’s as good as you hoped it would be – but you’re dreading the next step: finding a literary agent. This next step involves queries, synopses, selling your idea and much more. It’s a completely different monster than actually sitting down to write.
If you’re looking for guidance in the agent-hunting process or have questions that need answering, sign up for my webinar, “How to Land a Literary Agent,” at 1 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 8. There’s a reason that “How to Land a Literary Agent” is WD’s most popular webinar. It’s because the online session crams tons of info into 90 minutes. Subjects I’ll be talking about include, but are not limited to: queries, pitching, proposals, synopses, conferences, avoiding scammers, where to find agents, self-publishing, and how to pick the best one for you.
Do you know how to begin a query letter to an agent? I’ll show you. Do you wonder about contacting multiple agents at the same time? We’ll discuss that. Are you curious about how to protect yourself and your ideas from scammers and rip-off artists? We’ll address that, too – and more. After editing the Guide to Literary Agents for three years and attending writers’ conferences all over the country, I’ve learned all the ins and outs of how to snag a rep who can sell your work. If you sign up for this webinar, I can pass on what I’ve learned to you.
Also, attendees are free to ask as many questions as they like. Go on – hit me with your best shot! I’ll be answering questions live in real time, and I will address all questions afterward and e-mail you the answers.
Sign up now! I hope to “see” you there.
