Online Class: Matchmaking Your Manuscript

I don't know about you guys, but one of the most time-consuming aspects of writing is when your manuscript is complete and it's time to match your manuscript with an appropriate publisher and create a killer cover letter. You need to have the right market guides, know where to find the most up-to-date information on editors, and know what publishers are looking for. I stumbled upon a class being co-instructed by Laura Purdie Salas and Lisa Bullard. I'm a little late in posting this news, so unfortunately, the deadline to register is TODAY, but there is another class being offered next month: Love at First Sight: Writing a Cover Letter that Makes Editors "Swoon."

You can check out all the details at The Children's Literature Network.


  1. Thanks for posting this, Lori. I took a course taught by Laura two years ago and it was excellent.

  2. Thanks so much for posting this, Lori! Lisa and I appreciate your spreading the word. Class starts Thursday, and CLN would likely take someone still if they wanted to register a day or two late (I'm not in charge of that, so I really shouldn't make promises, but...)

    And thanks, Sheri, too, for the kind words!
