December 13-14, 2008
Cincinnati, OH

You’ve been asking us for years… and now, for the first time ever, Writer’s Digest is opening its doors for a brand-new publishing event. That’s right—you’re invited to the heart of WD Headquarters to take part in exclusive panel discussions and manuscript critiques featuring these top editors:

Jane Friedman, Publisher & Editorial Director, Writer’s Digest
Chuck Sambuchino, Editor, Guide to Literary Agents
Alice Pope, Editor, Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market
Joe Stollenwerk, Director, WritersOnlineWorkshops.com

During a full-day’s worth of workshops, they’ll give you the insider tips you need to publish your work in today’s competitive market. You’ll learn how to…

> Research and identify the right agent
> Write a killer one-page query for your novel
> Write a bulletproof nonfiction book proposal
> Avoid sabotaging your career and move faster down the publishing path
> Break into tough markets and get responses from busy editors and agents

Best of all, you’ll meet one-on-one with a WD editor who will provide an individual critique of either your query letter and proposal package (up to 50 pages), or the first 50 pages of your manuscript—plus offer a customized list of best-bet markets for selling your work!
