With Andrew Shaffer. Publishing your own work has never been easier. Unfortunately, if you’re new to self-publishing, you can end up thousands of dollars in the hole before ever selling a single book. If you know what pitfalls to avoid, however, you can professionally publish your own books without breaking the bank. Learn the basics of cover design, ebook and print book formatting, and self-publishing. [ALL LEVELS]
With Tracee de Hahn.
Are you ready to find an agent and publisher? Perfect the pitch that will get the attention of an agent. Leave ready to translate the pitch into a competitive query letter, synopsis and proposal. The class will focus on the pitch, which is at the heart of any sell. We will workshop the idea at the heart of the novel or memoir, then turn that into a query letter. From here, participants can use our examples to finalize their synopsis and proposal. Led by Tracee de Hahn, author of the Agnes Lüthi mystery series, published by St. Martin's Press.
