Avoiding Common Mistakes on the Road to Publication
A multi-published novelist and former editor shares insights from her past experiences (and mistakes) to help you avoid the most common errors newer writers make, like plot and point-of-view blunders, research woes, gaffes when requesting endorsements and working with editors, as well as advice on how to balance issues, faith, and story, to give yourself the best shot at attracting an agent and publisher.
In order to make the most of your 1:1 appointment, we recommend that you carefully review the faculty members' areas of expertise, needs, and requests to identify those best suited for your goals as a writer.
Area of expertise: Most of my experience is in fiction, but I am happy to answer questions and encourage writers in any genre.
