You’ve written a novel. You’ve revised a novel. You’ve re-written and re-revised a novel.
Landing an agent is daunting. In this one-day seminar we’ll demystify the process: from research to contract.
You’ll learn how to find agents who represent your genre, and importantly, how to attract their attention. You’ll get tips for condensing your brilliant book into a 3-4 line description. You’ll write an intriguing bio. Never published before? Don’t despair. There is something about you that will stand out to an agent. Bring a draft query letter and be prepared to workshop it in a group setting.
