Maya Reynolds Workshop

I was going to put this in tomorrow's Markets post, but today's the deadline!! This one is an online class and very reasonable too, so don't miss it.

My friend, Maya Reynolds is holding this workshop. Maya is a phenomenal speaker and she packs a lot of information into her workshops. If you don't read Maya's blog, you should. She stays on top of the publishing industry, so she knows what she's talking about in her workshop.

Everything You Want to Know About Publishing

Here's the five-day schedule:

Monday: Overview of the industry. A quick historical perspective. What you need to know about genres. How your personality plays into your approach to getting published.

Tuesday: Publishers. Who the major players are and how they think.

Wednesday: Agents. What they do, and how to go about getting one.

Thursday: Booksellers. Why Borders and Barnes & Noble are having such problems. What's going on over at Amazon.

Friday: A look at the major trends. How to increase your odds of getting published.

I think this workshop is closed now, but Maya runs them several times a year. I'll try to do a better job of staying on top of them.
