"How to Get Published," Sunday, August 22, Sarnia
Lawrence House, 127 Christina Street South, Sarnia (At the corner of Wellington. Map here.)
If you've ever dreamed of becoming a published author, this workshop 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. He teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Windsor to Moncton. But his proudest boast is that he’s helped many of his students get their first book published and 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.
