WHAT IS IT?
This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Saturday, May 2, 2020, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Los Angeles – Westside. 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.
The 2015 and 2019 Writing Conference of Los Angeles events were a success, and we are excited about the 2020 event. Registration for 2020 is now OPEN.
This independent event is organized by coordinator Kerrie Flanagan of Writing Day Workshops, with assistance from local writing organizations.
