Elizabeth Law

Editorial Consultant

    30-years Experience in Publishing 

Elizabeth Law will present a workshop on developing character in picture books, novels, and biography, followed by a free-ranging Q&A about writing/illustrating and publishing. Bring your questions about EVERYTHING —  submitting, agents, what publishers are looking for, etc.

To prepare, please read Elizabeth's blog post, 10 Things That Make an Editor Stop Reading Your Manuscript, which drew nearly 20,000 visitors to her website over two days last summer.

Access this webinar through your computer or phone in the comfort of your home, or join a group in Spokane, Tri-Cities or Moscow/Pullman. Those attending the group locations with fellow writers will have a manuscript critique session following Elizabeth's 90-minute webinar.
