Writing your Way to Publication
Publishing | with Jeff Kleinman
Learn the craft of writing from an agent’s perspective! In this hands-on workshop, the first 5 pages of your manuscript (novel, memoir, or narrative nonfiction) will be workshopped and evaluated with an eye toward publication.
Each day we’ll focus on a different aspect of craft – premise, voice, character, and momentum – with prompts, tips, and exercises to improve your writing and improve your manuscript’s likelihood to get picked up for publication.
Jeff Kleinman is one of the most highly regarded literary agents in the US, and a founding partner at Folio Literary Management, one of the top agencies New York. They cover the whole spectrum of genres.
With his intimate knowledge of the literary market, Jeff can delve into your work and guide you to capture and keep the attention of your readers by finding and sticking with your most authentic voice. In this class, participants will share their work for Jeff’s seasoned and insightful input on what works, what doesn’t, and what will sell. He will use a variety of nuts-and-bolts exercises designed to immediately improve your craft with an eye toward publication.
Kauai Writers Conference is thrilled to offer this class.
* This workshop was previously titled “Finding and Working with an Agent.” The class does include that topic, and Jeff has given this fuller description to provide a more complete picture of all that this unique class offers. We’re confident it will be of tremendous value for writers who find a spot in it.
