You have a brilliant new YA or middle grade novel or picture book that you want to put out there (or an idea for one), but you're not sure how to land an agent and get it published. Have no fear, Jill Corcoran, literary agent extraordinaire is here! Through an informative craft talk and fun in-class exercises, she'll give you the inside scoop on how to present your work in the best possible light and how to craft a book that will sell. She will teach you what you need to know so you don’t make the rookie mistakes and show you how to make your work stand out. You’ll even get a one-on-one consultation with Jill and get feedback on an advance submission of your work in the afternoon! By the end of this class, you'll walk away with a plan that's certain to get your foot in the door.
