Will you be at Grub Street’s Muse and the Marketplace 2015 Conference this weekend (Friday, May 1, 2015-Sunday, May 3, 2015)? Book Country is proud to be a Muse sponsor this year, and we’ll be hanging out in the exhibition area all weekend long, meeting writers and chatting about how Book Country can help them meet their writing and publishing goals. In fact, all Muse attendees are getting a free copy of our white paper, “Treat Your Book Like a Start-Up: Use Feedback to Successfully Write and Publish Your Book.” Give it a read and stop by the Book Country table to get specialized one-on-one advice for how to apply this advice to your book.
We’re also really excited about this session we are hosting on Friday afternoon. The details are below. We hope to see you there!
Friday, May 1 – 3:45-5:00pm – Cabot Room
Online writing communities like Wattpad, Critique Circle, and Penguin Random House’s Book Country are an opportunity for writers for all over the world to start building a platform and connect directly to publishers and readers—even as they are still working on a manuscript. These online communities offer benefits that “real life” writing communities or classes do not. A Grub Street instructor tried out Book Country for a month, and will share the experience using the Book Country website, offering advice for all. Lucy Silag, Book Country Director, will share publishing success stories, as well as offer tips for approaching online writing communities for writers working toward finding an agent or publishing deal.
