As part of our lead up to LitCon 2023, we are adding online programming in the form of Industry Interviews

From March 1-9th join us as we interview industry experts on the different stages of book publishing from how to make your first edit to how to talk with publishers. 

Our friends at FriesenPress will award one lucky attendee with a free Manuscript Evaluation (reg. $499) from one of their vetted editors! Whether your manuscript is complete or a work in progress, the valuable feedback from a FriesenPress editor will help you move your project forward.
