With Jennifer Mattox, Carnegie Center Kentucky Great Writers Series Coordinator. If you want to publish traditionally once you’ve finished writing and revising your novel, you need to secure a literary agent first. Learn the process for seeking a literary agent, from beginning to end: where to find agents, the formula for writing a query letter, what may be required in your submission package, how to keep track of query submissions, and the proper etiquette for interacting with agents. Though your novel must be complete before you submit to literary agents, you do not need to be finished in order to attend this seminar. [INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED]
