Cover Letter and Submissions Masterclass
Sat. 27 May 2017, 10:00 am – 12:30 pm AEST
Join internationally published award winning author and Director of Share Your Story, Michelle Worthington, in a Masterclass designed to get your story the best chance of being published. Topics include understanding submission guidelines and standard practices, researching potential publishers, what to include in the cover letter and how to sell yourself as an author. Publishers use a cover letter to quickly make a decision about whether an applicant demonstrates the background and professional experience they are looking for and it can make the difference between whether your manuscript gets the attention it deserves or even if it is read by the people who make the decisions. All printed resources are included in the price of the workshop, including a sample cover letter and a template to write your own. This practical workshop will give you the skills you need to feel confident in submitting your manuscript to publishers for consideration.
Tea, coffee and light refreshements will be served, and of course...chocolate biscuits.
