Three-Day Submission Strategy Workshop | January 24-26

So you’ve got your query. You’ve got your first page. You have some idea of how all this works. Then the rejections start coming in. How do you pivot? How do you know if you’re on the right track? Are you making easily avoided mistakes, or do you just need to be patient?

In this workshop, we’ll go over your rejections, queries, first pages, submission list, personalization, overall strategy, and more. You’ll leave feeling confident, knowing you’re making the best possible choices for your book–and supported by your new writer community.

Each day includes a lesson (either recorded or live, going over the work you submitted), an exercise, and a group to help you polish.

We’ll also have two live panels–one to interpret your rejections, and one with agents John Cusick (Folio Literary) and Lauren Spieller (TriadaUS) to go over your queries (as many as we can, chosen at random by genre, in the time allotted–but even if yours isn’t chosen, this is still a great learning experience).

This event is open to all genres, age groups, and experience levels.
