Limited Capacity seats available

It's an exciting moment when a writer signs a contract with a publisher, but it's just the first step in the process of transforming a manuscript into a book. This session will cover the basic ways in which writers and the staff members of publishing companies work together to polish the manuscript, launch the book, and keep it in print. Helpful for all emerging writers of any stripe, and for those seeking to understand the process they hope they will soon be undertaking.
