You’ve typed ‘The End’ and you’re ready to submit. What next? How do you pitch your manuscript to a publisher or agent to ensure the best chance of success? How can you take advantage of awards and competitions? Why is networking in your writing community so important? (and how do you do it?) Practical aspects: writing exercises and discussion; cover letter; synopsis; useful tips and industry contacts; receiving rejection; how to be a good literary citizen.
Join me in discussion with international best-selling author Garry Disher and his latest crime novel PEACE.
Now in its third year, the Sunshine Writers Retreat has swiftly gained a reputation for quality and professional workshops, connections to agents and publishers, and networking with other writers. I’m excited to be part of the 2019 program, along with a great line-up of authors. Check out the full program!
