“Why Was My Manuscript Rejected?” 3 Literary Agents, 3 Opinions

From Anna Olswanger:

Have you written a children’s or YA manuscript that you believe is publishable, but which has been turned down without encouragement or advice by agents and publishers?

Are you hungry for feedback on your writing for children?

We think we can help!

We are three literary agents in daily contact with clients and publishers, who specialize in children’s books, and we are offering to read your manuscript and give you our reactions to it.

The workshop promises to be lively with three, possibly different opinions about the strength and weaknesses of each manuscript We will also discuss marketplace considerations, writing tips, and hold a general Q&A session.

Faculty: Andrea Cascardi of Transatlantic Literary Agency, Anna Olswanger of Liza Dawson Associates, and Ann Tobias of A Literary Agency for Children’s Books.

Workshop date: April 25.

Location: Shelburne Hotel
303 Lexington Avenue (at 37th Street)
New York, NY 10016

Time: 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Our previous workshops in April and November, 2009 sold out.

Register early for the special rate of $195. After March 25, the rate goes up to $225. Group size is strictly limited to allow a full discussion of each participant’s manuscript, which the agents will read in advance of the workshop.
