- Main Workshop: Deeanne Gist presents “BEHIND THE SCENES: What Happens To Your Manuscript Once It Is Sold–From Contract To Store Shelves”
Saturday, January 13th, 2007.
More about this month’s program:
Christie Craig presents “The Great Agent Hunt: Snagging an Agent, Working with an Agent, Surviving a Bad Agent and How to Keep on Going when The Going Gets Tough”
Deeanne Gist presents “BEHIND THE SCENES: What Happens To Your Manuscript Once It Is Sold–From Contract To Store Shelves” The publishing of a novel takes a huge collaborative effort–some of which is in the author’s control, much of which is not. Deeanne will talk about how a 500-page manuscript is transformed into a bound book. She’ll show how the editorial process changes the fabric of a novel, take you on the shocking journey of how cover art is decided upon, and pass around an actual 32-page “signature” fresh off the printing press. Don’t miss this inside look at the birthing of a novel.
