Alabama Writing Workshop: How to Get Published

  • Embassy Suites by Hilton Birmingham 2300 Woodcrest Road South Birmingham, AL, 35205 United States (map)

This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Friday, March 8, 2019, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Birmingham (near the Birmingham Zoo). In other words, it’s one day full of classes and advice designed to give you the best instruction concerning how to get your writing & books published. We’ll discuss your publishing opportunities today, how to write queries & pitches, how to market yourself and your books, what makes an agent/editor stop reading your manuscript, and more. No matter what you’re writing — fiction or nonfiction — the day’s classes will help point you in the right direction. Writers of all genres are welcome.

This event is designed to squeeze as much into one day of learning as possible. You can ask any questions you like during the classes, and get your specific concerns addressed. We will have literary agents onsite to give feedback and take pitches from writers, as well. This year’s faculty includes the following:

  • literary agent Caroline George (C.Y.L.E. Literary Elite)

  • literary agent Nikki Terpilowski (Holloway Literary)

  • literary agent Alexis Sattler (HSG Agency)

  • literary agent Weronika Janczuk (D4E0 Literary)

  • literary agent Sandra O’Donnell (RO Literary)

  • literary agent Moe Ferrara (BookEnds Literary)

  • literary agent Hannah Whatley (Hartline Literary)

  • literary agent Susan Velazquez (JABberwocky Literary)

  • editor Mike Parker (Wordcrafts Press)

  • and possibly more to come. 

By the end of the day, you will have all the tools you need to move forward on your writing journey. This independent event is organized by coordinator Jessica Bell of Writing Day Workshops, with help from the Alabama Writers Conclave.
