One of the most common questions new writers ask is, “How do I get published?” But wow, there’s a lot to unpack from that one question! There are many routes to publication and a lot for the new author to navigate. If you’re seeking publication yourself or are an editorial professional who wants to better serve her clients, we hope you’ll join our very own Ally Machate and the Editorial Freelancers Association for a special webinar about “How Authors Go From Shy to Sold.”
You’ve experienced the satisfaction of working hard to learn a craft and producing a quality piece of writing but now what? If you ever want anyone to read your work outside of your immediate circle of family and friends, you’ll need to get published. And if you’re asking yourself, “How do I get published?” (or hearing that question from your author clients), this is the webinar for you.
Though self-publishing is always an option, this talk focuses on how writers generally approach the submission process in what many call the “traditional” or “legacy” route to publication. Find out who really decides what gets published, how to approach them without getting the proverbial door slammed in your face, and what these gatekeepers expect from you besides your very best work. You’ll also get tips that will make your queries and proposals more effective for best results.
The webinar will be on April 11, 2018 at 7-8PM EST. If you can’t attend live, don’t worry! The recording will be made available to all registrants, and Ally is always happy to answer questions if you just email her.
“Your presentation was, by far, one of the most helpful, well-organized, insightful, and honest presentations I have heard on the topic of preparing and submitting my work. The examples of queries you spoke of from your experience, and the references you provided during the meeting and just the overall thoroughness of your whole presentation combined to make a motivating and positive experience. Thank you so much for all of your help!” —Mike Crowl
