Make 2018 the year you land a literary agent. In this seminar, 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 1-page draft query letter and be prepared to workshop it in a group setting.
