Joanne is presenting a workshop at RWA 2019 in New York City with her critique partner, Catherine Mann, onSubmission 101 to help authors polish a submission package. Writers will learn how to follow up their pitches with substantive, thoroughly polished pieces that demonstrate a knowledge of the industry expectations for a selling proposal. The workshop discusses pitching, smart use of hooks, writing a query letter and synopsis, and gives an overview of what to include in your proposal package. Submission 101 offers clear, constructive advice for a stronger final product.
Here’s a sneak peek of links referenced in the workshop to help writers learn more about putting together their submissions.
