David Hazard has spent nearly 40 years in and around the publishing industry, presenting and reviewing manuscript proposals in publishing committee meetings with major companies. "Too often, good books 'miss the mark' and are not accepted - not because of the manuscript itself, but because the pitch and proposal is weak. That's a tragedy."
The workshop presents an insider's understanding of what it takes to get "yes" votes from key players in the publishing review process.
"Sitting in" on a virtual publishing committee meeting, you'll learn how to grab each player's attention, and the whole process of review leading up to that hoped-for "brass ring" - a contract.
Registration deadline: June 13, 2017
