Lynn Johnston | So, You Want to Get Published?

It’s a myth that only established authors or people with big platforms get book deals. In fact, “regular” people get published every day because they understand how publishing works and how to maximize their chances. This interactive workshop led by New York City literary agent Lynn Johnston will help you crack the code on publishing. You will learn how to evaluate your book project from the perspective of publishers, how to prepare to put your best foot forward before you start querying, from writing op-eds to creating a website to using social media ,and how to research your target list of agents and editors. Each participant will leave with an individual plan based on group exercises and a one-on-one session where you will receive professional critique and advice.

Lynn Johnston is a literary agent in New York City where she represents notable authors in nonfiction and a small selection of fiction. She represents Pulitzer-winning journalists, thought leaders, advice-givers, stay-at-home moms and dads, school teachers and more. Her list features numerous national and regional bestsellers, award winners, and titles recognized on numerous “best of year” lists. She has an MBA and BA in Philosophy.
