Near Manhattan? The New York Writers Workshop will be hosting a 1 Day Intensive on Sunday, February 13th, 2011 at 11 am, called “I Wrote a Book…Now What? 10 Things You Need to Know to Get Published.” Some deets:
This information-packed workshop will focus on approaching agents, plus how best to work with an agent once you’ve been signed. What is reasonable to expect–and what isn’t? The second part of the day will question the whole basic premise of the first, offering five alternative routes to publication that could make you more successful, faster, than the traditional path. Discussion and frequent opportunities for Q&A will enliven every hour spent on this very lively topic.

For people who can’t make it to the Intensive, Jenny Milchman, who will be lead it, will share the Top 5 Questions asked in class with WU readers on February 20th.
“Expect to see more than 5 A’s to accompany the Q’s, though!” she said. “The one thing you can count on when the publishing industry is discussed, is that for every writer present, there will be multiple paths to success.”
I’d also like to give a shout out to a newer site in the blogosphere, The Happy Writer. THW is a positive, inspirational site, meant “to remind writers why we started writing in the first place.”
Until next time…
