This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, Feb. 6,
2016, at the Sheraton North Houston At George Bush Intercontinental. 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 faculty so far includes literary agent Paul S. Levine (Paul S. Levine Literary); literary agent Patricia Nelson (Marsal Lyon Literary); literary agent Eve Porinchak (Jill Corcoran Literary); literary agent Rachel Brooks (L. Perkins Agency); and literary agent Tricia Skinner (Fuse Literary).
