Mon & Tues, Jan. 20 &21, Manuscript Review, Groton, CT, area

I will be teaching how to get Self-Published at Unicorn Writers' Conference. I know the chairman of this conference, Jan Kardys, and am very impressed by her work as an agent and concern for authors. I highly recommend the following offer for those who live in the Groton, CT, area.
 
Subject: One-to-one sessions MANUSCRIPT PAGES 20 pages, 20 minutes, $20 January 20th and January 21st. Groton, CT area. ONLY $20!
 
Jan Kardys, Black Hawk Literary Agency will be offering writers the opportunity to submit 20 pages of the beginning of their manuscript along with a summary of the book ( for fee of $20) and meet with each writer to discuss the material for 20 minutes.  The email address is libraryeventsunicorn@gmail.com for the material to be submitted in advance in preparation for the 1-1 meetings. A summary of the book should be an additional attachment.  Jan will meet with writers on January 20th at 10 am and schedule meetings until 4 pm, and January 21st  from 10 am until 3 pm. 
 
The purpose is to really give writers at all levels the honest input they need on these early pages, and to provide practical and helpful direction on their book. The first five pages of a book are critical in hooking the reader into the book.  In addition, Jan Kardys and Jeanne Rogers are launching a new company, Unicorn for Writers that will assist writers at all levels. 
 
Meetings will be scheduled with each writer via email and submissions should be sent to libraryeventsunicorn@gmail.com
