You’re not ready — a workshop for writers

The biggest mistake an author can make is self-publishing or querying agents too early. 

In this workshop, attendees will learn how literary professionals know if a manuscript isn’t ready and what you can do to avoid these pitfalls. Using real examples, together we’ll examine a query letter, a synopsis and the first ten pages of a manuscript to identify these common problems. You’ll also get a chance to assess the readiness of your own writing projects.
While registration isn’t necessary, it is recommended. The most important thing is to come, learn and have fun!
