Around the WD Properties: 2-9-2009

Publish date:

Here's what's going on around all the
great Writer's Digest peeps and properties.

Alice Pope, editor of Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market, is hosting a webinar titled You Can Write Children's Books.

It will be held this Thursday,
Feb. 12, at 1 p.m. EST. There are a limited number of seats available
- I recommend registering now to reserve your seat! Registration includes access to the live event as well as
the archived seminar that you can re-watch whenever you'd like.

In additional to the info in the seminar itself, Alice will be offering some quick "first page" critiques. She'll look at the beginnings of more than half a dozen stories submitted by attendees from the perspective of an editor or agent who's just opened your manuscript. She'll give you a gut reaction and tell you what could make your first page stronger and compel an editor or agent to read on.
