Gearing up for Superstars Writing Seminar 2013

Published November 7, 2012 in Writing - 0 Comments

After three highly successful Superstars Writing Seminars—Las Vegas in 2012, Salt Lake City in 2011, and Pasadena in 2010—we are putting together next year’s event. Superstars 2013 will be in Colorado Springs, Colorado, May 14–16 at the historic Antlers Hotel at the base of Pike’s Peak. (This is the place where Katherine Bates wrote the song “America the Beautiful” in 1895—so it already has a creative history, not to mention a spectacular setting.)

The Superstars Writing Seminars are intensive three-day events about the business side of publishing, writing, and managing your career—taught by five international bestselling writers, as well as impressive guest instructors.

Economics of Commercial Publishing
How Editors Look at Manuscripts, Novels, and Short Fiction
