Calling All Would-Be Authors And Lovers Of The Written Word
We’ve got some work to do here. Books, they are a changin, what you’re reading these days is coming in all kinds of forms, hard and soft cover books, online, on a Kindle, soon in a hologram, forms we haven’t even thought of yet. The bottom line, there are stories to tell and words to be written, but how do you cut through the clutter and get someone to notice your book, you’re story. How do you submit to a literary agent? For most all of this seems daunting, impossible even if you’ve just written what turns out to be a time best seller.
Well, Jan Kardys, CEO and Founder of the Unicorn Writer’s Conference knows all of this too and has put this event together to help you get over a ton of hurdles.
Kardys has more than thirty years of diversified publishing experience and she knows how to help you get noticed in a big huge crowd of writers. Jan has developed the Unicorn Writer’s Conference. The fourth event is coming up on March 9, 2013 at her favorite venue, Saint Clements Castle in Portland, Connecticut.
Because of her extensive background in the publishing world she gets names to show up at her castle, and that means famed authors and writers and literary agents that you’ve probably only read about but didn’t know hot to get a hold of them. Once you show up for the day long event you get up close and personal with these important people in the literary world who can guide you.
There are workshops on contracts, copyrights, permissions, how to do legal work, the sales, the marketing, advertising and marketing and how to cut through all that red tape and get steered in the right direction. Jan and I met at R.J. Julia Booksellers in Madison which was once called the best little independent book store in America, seemed appropriate enough for the shot, right?
