ARE YOU GOOD ENOUGH TO BE PUBLISHED?
It’s time for the seventh annual symposium on what it takes to get your book published, providing participants with frank feedback and honest evaluation of your proposal or sample manuscript from a publishing veteran. We'll discuss how to research and prepare an idea -- fiction or nonfiction -- and guidelines for revision if there's a realistic chance of success. Our veteran facilitator is Alan Rinzler, who has been in the book business for 44 years, working with such authors as Toni Morrison, Hunter Thompson, Tom Robbins, Jerzy Kosinski, Robert Ludlum, Clive Cussler, Dee Brown, Vine Deloria Jr, Claude Brown, Oscar Acosta, Shirley MacLaine, Andy Warhol, Bob Dylan and others -- at Rolling Stone, Simon and Schuster, Bantam Books, Grove Press, and John Wiley & Sons. If you'd like your proposal or manuscript to be considered before the group, send no more than 15 pages to [email protected] or hard copy to Alan Rinzler. Executive Editor, Jossey-Bass/Wiley, 989 Market Street, SF, CA 94103, no later than January 19. 3:00 PM at Cody’s Fourth Street, Berkeley
The symposium continues on Sunday, March 4 at 3:00 PM at Cody’s Stockton Street, San Francisco.
