    Date: February 23, 2019
    Time: 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM CST
    Event Description:
    This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in the French Quarter. In other words, it’s one day full of classes and advice designed to give you the best instruction concerning how to get your writing & books published. We’ll discuss your publishing opportunities today, how to write queries & pitches, how to market yourself and your books, what makes an agent/editor stop reading your manuscript, and more. No matter what you’re writing — fiction or nonfiction — the day’s classes will help point you in the right direction. Writers of all genres are welcome. This event is designed to squeeze as much into one day of learning as possible. You can ask any questions you like during the classes, and get your specific concerns addressed. We will have literary agents onsite to give feedback and take pitches from writers, as well.
