So, one of my twitter feeds let me know about a writing event coming up in my area-The 2018 Seattle Writing Workshop: April 28, 2018- THIS SATURDAY!!! It is only a few days away, so instead of waiting to post on Inside the Publishing World on Wednesday, here ya go!
Here are the details from the website:
This writing event is a wonderful opportunity to get intense instruction over the course of one day, pitch a literary agent or editor (optional), get your questions answered, and more. Note that there are limited seats at the event (200 total). All questions about the event regarding schedule, details and registration are answered below. Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Seattle Writing Workshop!
WHAT IS IT?
This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle Bellevue. 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. This year’s agent faculty so far includes:
[NEW ADDITION] literary agent Vicki Selvaggio (Storm Literary)
[NEW ADDITION] literary agent Rachel Beck (Holloway Literary)
literary agent Gordon Warnock (Fuse Literary)
literary agent Becky LeJeune (Bond Literary)

and many more to come
