WHAT IS IT?
This is a special one-day “How to Get Published” writing workshop on Aug. 8-9, 2020, at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel downtown (updated venue). 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. By the end of the day, you will have all the tools you need to move forward on your writing journey.
The 2016 and 2019 Toronto Writing Workshops were successes, and we are excited about the 2020 event. Registration is now open for the 2020 event.
This independent event is organized by coordinator Chuck Sambuchino of Writing Day Workshops, with assistance from regional Toronto writing groups.
