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.
Please join Ally and the Maryland Writer’s Association Baltimore chapter as she speaks with members about Querying, Proposing, and Getting Your Book Published.
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. Though self-publishing is always an option, this talk focuses on how writers generally approach the submission process. 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 chapter meeting will be on August 30, 2018 at 7-8:30PM EST.
“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
