I will be teaching an online webinar on Thursday, March 11, on “How Do Agents and Editors Decide?” It’s a 90-minute class filled with advice and tips for both fiction and nonfiction writers.
The beauty of a webinar is that you can attend even if you’re not available to participate in the live event! If you sign up for the webinar, you can access the presentation as many times as you want over the course of one year. You can re-watch it and take more notes. We will even answer your questions (via email) after you finally watch the presentation.
How Do Agents and Editors Decide?
Why do some projects get picked out of the pile by agents and editors while most do not? It’s because great books that catch the eyes of the pros are a combination of an excellent idea, excellent writing, and, in some cases, an excellent platform.
In this webinar, writers will learn:
→How to capture your book in a compelling hook that will draw the attention of agents and editors.
→ How to determine if your rejections are less about your project and more about the marketplace.
→ What is meant by the “competitive advantage” and how to know if you have it.
→ How to make your writing shine—taking an idea and fleshing it out with voice, narrative, point-of-view, and structure.
→ How to develop an attractive writer platform—connecting with other writers and individuals while making yourself a visible authority on a subject.
→ How agents and editors quickly look over a project and decide if it has the necessary elements to make them request more.
One of the best parts about the webinar is that you get to interact and ask questions. I will address writer questions in real time. If I can’t get around to all questions during the seminar, I’ll address them afterward and e-mail you the answers! No question goes unanswered.
