How does a manuscript become a physical book? What’s it like working with an agent? Should you self-publish, go indie, submit to contests, or send hundreds of copies to publishing houses all over the country and hope for the best? (Pro tip: don’t do the latter!) 

Author Advice is a monthly, informal talk with an author (Q&A included!) about their personal paths to publication. They’ll break down why they did what they did to make their book a reality, and what they learned from the process.

January 27 – 7 PM: Kate Messner, a writer of award-winning picture books, easy readers, chapter book series, and novels for young readers. She’ll talk about her myriad publishing experiences and offer advice to attendees looking to get their children’s book or YA novel published.
