Description of Class
One night. One author. One focused study of the craft.
We’re pleased to welcome acclaimed author Courtney Maum to the studio for this single-session master class on revising your work for publication. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to study with a master for an evening of close reading and in-depth discussion.
You think your manuscript is ready for submission, but how do you really know?
In this Master Class taught by the author of BEFORE AND AFTER THE BOOK DEAL, Courtney Maum helps writers understand how to ready their manuscripts and their query letters for an agent’s eyes. From identifying “low-calorie language” throughout a project and making sure your middle doesn’t drag to verifying that you have a plot (or at the very least, some heavy conflict), Courtney will also share tips on writing query letters that will win an agent’s reply.
This class will address both craft and business elements of publishing to help aspiring authors identify when their manuscript is truly done.Top
