First Pages with Editor Karen Chaplin

(Recording will be available for 1 month after live webinar.) The first page of your manuscript can hook an agent or editor right away – or turn them off immediately.

Whether you choose to submit your first pages or just view the feedback our publishing pro offers to others, you’ll gain insights in how to improve your own first pages. Karen is also offering a limited number of 10-page written manuscript critiques following the webinar. (Submission date for critiques will be one week after the webinar to allow participants time to revise using what they have learned.)

Promoting Your Work through Collaborative Marketing (presented by Veronica Bartles and Kathy MacMillan)

A 90-minute webinar to help you better promote your work, whether you are traditionally published, self-published, or a hybrid author. Many writers and illustrators dread marketing, but promoting your work doesn’t have to be a chore! Sometimes, spreading the word about others’ books is the best way to market your own. Learn how to collaborate with other children’s book creators on events, programs, and initiatives that will raise the profile of your work without turning you into a carnival barker.

DATE: May 10, 2018, 8PM EST, 7PM Central, 6PM Mountain, 5PM PST

Cost: $15 for members; non-members: $25; A limited number of 10-page Synopsis/1st Chapter critiques available from the presenter for $30 each.
