Agent Tips, Tricks & Know-How!

Some common question writers have are:

How do I find an agent? Should I go the independent route?
Should I send my book directly to a publisher? Or should I publish independently?

Get the inside knowledge from Trena White of Page Two Publishing Strategies in the very first professional development workshop hosted by the UBC Creative Writing Alumni Association. Some of the topics being discussed will include: best ways to find an agent, how to evaluate an agent’s fit for you, why work with an agent, why you might not need an agent, what do you pay them, and how do you know when it is time to break up with your agent and more!

 This LIVE webinar is happening on December 7, 2016 at 12 Noon Pacific Time! 

PAGE TWO helps authors and companies make smart publishing decisions and produces their non-fiction work to the highest possible standards: “Customization is at the heart of everything we do: we devise a tailor-made strategy for each client, and we position them to make the most of all the industry has to offer.”
