"How to Get Published," Friday, April 23, Moncton, New Brunswick


The Frye Festival and PWAC present...
“How to Get Published”
Friday, April 23
9:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
City Grill, 2nd floor, 130 Westmorland Street Moncton, NB (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 instructor for more than 25 years. He teachers creative writing at Ryerson University and George Brown College and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Sudbury. 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, a couple copies could be helpful.

The Frye Festival brings the best local, national and international authors, poets, playwrights, graphic novelists, spoken word artists and storytellers to Moncton, New Brunswick for a bilingual Festival. This year, the Festival runs April 19 to 25. More here.

Seminar fee: $55 for the general public, or $50 for members of the Periodicl Writers Association of Canada (PWAC)
