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 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
