SARANAC LAKE — The Adirondack Center for Writing is proud to offer the Annual Publishing Conference at Silver Bay YMCA, on June 8.
The conference includes lectures, workshop, and the opportunity to have your manuscript critiqued by the experts.
This summer, ACW welcomes literary agents Becca Stumpf and Kate Gerrick to lecture and to workshop your writing. Stumpf represents adult and young-adult fiction for Prospect Agency, with a focus in smart genre writing. Stumpf, Schwartzman, and Gerrick will offer short manuscript critique sessions as part of the conference. Submissions of work are due on May 17, and should include the first 10 pages, a cover letter and a one-page synopsis, sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Book publicists Susan Schwartzman and Gilbert K. Zachary will present on the importance of an author platform.
The conference is open to the public at a cost of $89. ACW members $79; manuscript critique, $25. Lunch provided. For more information, visit adirondackcenterforwriting.com
