Working on an essay, novel, magazine article or history book, but not sure how to get it published when you're done? Hesitating to share your ideas because you think the process is more complicated than you're ready for? Then this professional development session is for you. Learn from A J B Johnston and Norma Jean MacPhee as they share everything they know about the publishing process - from non-fiction and magazine articles to short stories and novels.
Norma Jean and John will talk transparently about the entire process, sharing practical, usable advice on a wide range of topics including (but not limited to):
- writing an eye-catching query letter
- finding the right market for your work
- working effectively with editors
- building your brand as a writer
- meeting tough deadlines
As a participants, you're encouraged to submit any questions you have in advance, so Norma Jean and John can answer as many specific questions as they can and tailor the presentation to the interests of the various regions. The first 45 minutes will feature presentations by John and Norma Jean about the writing and publishing process; the rest of the session will be a Q&A.
