Workshop: Getting published despite the economy

Getting published is never easy, but the current economic climate offers additional challenges—and opportunities. In this workshop, led by Marcela Landres, you will learn:

  • why debut writers are more valuable than published authors;
  • what agents and editors are looking for more than ever; and
  • the one trait that will ensure publication (hint: it’s not about the writing).

Date: Wednesday 25 June 2014, 6–7 p.m.

Location: X Caffe, 3952 Broadway, New York, NY 10032

Register: Limited space available. RSVP strongly encouraged to 

Marcela Landres is the author of the e-book, How Editors Think: The Real Reason They Rejected You, publishes the award-winning e-zine, Latinidad, and is an editorial consultant who helps writers get published by editing their work and educating them on the business side of publishing. A co-founder of the Comadres and Compadres Writers Conference, she has acted as a judge for the PEN/Beyond Margins Award and was formerly an editor with Simon & Schuster. For more information, visit her website.

“Marcela Landres presented her workshop with great energy and an engaging attitude. She didn’t sugarcoat the daunting odds aspiring authors face, but her facts and solid advice inspired me to meet those challenges head on. In my opinion, she offered the most quotable words of the entire conference: ‘Today is not too soon or too late. Today is a great day to make new choices to achieve better outcomes.’” —Cindy Dwyer
