The Foundations Of Getting Published with Jane Friedman

October 25, 2-4pm

The Writers Circle is thrilled to be bringing publishing guru Jane Friedman to our community!

In this 2-hour workshop with publishing industry expert Jane Friedman, you’ll learn not just the foundational principles of getting a book published, but gain up-to-date insight into the changing landscape of the publishing industry, and how you can navigate your own path toward success. You’ll discover what it takes to capture the attention of a New York publisher or literary agent (whether you write fiction or nonfiction) and come away with a better understanding of the commercial publishing business model. Jane shows you how to approach the submissions process with the right expectations and mindset.




As our 10th anniversary celebration kicked off, Founder/Director Judith Lindbergh shared her thoughts on how The Writers Circle began and some of the highlights of the last ten years in her blog post:
