Acquisitions: Everything You Want to Know (and Didn’t Know to Ask)
In this 90-minute webinar, we’ll walk through the submissions and acquisitions process step by step, addressing the agent search, the elements of a successful query letter and submissions package, and what’s happening on the editorial side of the desk, all the way through to a final response. Wherever you are in the submissions process, this webinar will provide the information you need to give your manuscript its best shot.


Scheduled for Friday, November 5, 2021. 6 pm CST. Webinar will be recorded.
