Publishing Seminar with Literary Agent Dana Murphy
Start Date: 8/1/2020Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 8/1/2020End Time: 3:30 PM
Event Description:

August 1, 2 – 3:30 p.m. EST

A refrain you’ll often hear when asking a question about the publishing process is “it depends.” Every book, every author, every agent, every publisher is wonderfully (and, yes, also frustratingly) unique. There is not a single right path to publishing a book, no traveling salesmen “six tricks to get an agent” to game the system, and no simple calculations to become a bestseller.

This is a business of chaos and a business of luck. Most importantly, it’s a business. Through this seminar, I hope to be a transparent resource and provide clarity on the wild process of publishing a book. We’ll cover topics including: How to query (and more importantly, are you ready to query); Tips for getting picked out of slush; What to ask a prospective agent; How to know what you need out of the agent/author partnership; the path to sale; and much more.
