“How to Get Published,” Sat, May 8, Uxbridge

The Uxbridge Public Library presents...
“How to Get Published”
Saturday, May 8
10:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Uxbridge Public Library, 9 Toronto St. S, Uxbridge (Map here.)

If you've ever dreamed of becoming a published author, this seminar is for you. We’ll cover everything from getting started to getting an agent, from getting your short pieces published to finding a book publisher, from writing a query letter to writing what the publishers want. Bring your questions. Come and get ready to be published!

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. But his proudest boast is that he’s helped many of his students to get their first book published and to launch their careers as authors.

Special Option: Participants are invited to bring a draft of a query letter you might use to interest an agent or publisher in your book. You don’t need to bring anything, but if you do, 3 copies could be helpful.

Fee: $38.10 plus gst = $40

To Register: Please register in advance at the front desk of the library or mail your cheque to:

Uxbridge Public Library
9 Toronto Street South
PO Box 279
Uxbridge, ON L9P 1P7

Please do register and pay in advance. Uxbridge is a small town, and if we don’t get enough registrations, the workshop won’t be a go.

For further information, phone the library: (905) 852-9747
or email Brian Henry: brianhenry@sympatico.ca

  1. What better recommendation to take Brian's courses/workshops than Linda's success and her acknowledgement that she was inspired by them.
    I myself have taken a few, including How to get published and couldn't agree more that these events fill you with energy, new ideas and new tools for the trade. Of course that in the end it's up to you how you use all these.

  2. Oops, I meant Sheila's success with her essay in the Globe/Life.
