  • Workshop 1: How to Write & Pitch the Killer Proposal

    Fairmont Chateau Whistler
    October 16, 2015 | 9:00 am – noon


    with Merilyn Simonds

    You’ve written a great book; now how do you get that editor or agent to read it? This workshop takes you through the primary elements of a successful book submission: the covering letter, the synopsis (and chapter outline, for nonfiction), the author bio and marketing strategy, and the sample manuscript. By the end, you’ll be able to pitch your book in 25 words or less. You’ll also learn the inner workings of the publishing industry and how to find the perfect editor or agent for your work. Limited enrolment.
