In this in-depth, 2 hour workshop, you’ll cover topics like editing your draft, what the role of a literary agent is and how to find and establish a relationship with one, working with your agent, what happens when a book goes on sub to editors, auctions, book deals, contracts, working with your editor, cover design, working with booksellers and retailers, the book launch, marketing and press, and more.

During the workshop you’ll have the chance to ask New York Times bestseller Ginny any questions that you might have. By the end of the session, you’ll have a complete understanding of what the publishing process looks like, start to finish, straight from an author who’s personally done it multiple times.
