Webinar: Leaping into Submissions!

Date(s) - 02/27/2020
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

What does it take to submit your work to agents? Or should you submit to publishers? There can be so many questions when submitting your work! This submission overview will have information on research to figure out who to submit to. You’ll get tips on deciphering those sometimes tricky submission guidelines. You’ll be shown steps to help lead you to create a strong query letter so you can send your best submission package. We’ll talk about how and why you should keep of track submissions, what to do after submission, and more “small” steps to take as you get ready to Leap Into Submissions!
