MWW Virtual One-Day Conference with Jane Friedman

How to Get Published: Traditional, Self, and Everything in Between

Saturday, March 27, 2021

  • Morning Session (10:30 am – 12:00 pm) Traditional Publishing
  • Afternoon Session (1:30 pm – 3:00 pm) Self-publishing (and alternatives like hybrid publishing)

In this masterclass with publishing industry expert Jane Friedman, you’ll learn not just the foundational principles of getting a book published, but gain up-to-date insight into the changing landscape of the publishing industry, and how you can navigate your own path toward success. You’ll discover what it takes to capture the attention of a New York publisher or literary agent (whether you write fiction or nonfiction) and how to determine if self-publishing, hybrid, or traditional publishing is the most appropriate path for your next project. Can’t attend all the sessions live? No problem. MWW is offering archival video access for 3 months to registered attendees. 

Cost: $79 early bird; $99 after February 28

Our online conference gives writers a place to go back and revisit and catch some of the content that they missed.

The sessions will feature a variety of content that will be determined by the individual faculty member and may feature lecture, possibly prompt work, and vital, informative, enjoyable discussions that build your skills as a writer. MWW21 features a remarkable faculty who know their stuff, providing information for both aspiring and practicing writers at all stages of their journey. Instruction led by renowned faculty for the genres of: novel, mystery/suspense, sci-fi, young adult, nonfiction/memoir, and poetry.

MWW Writing Services connects writers to trained experts in the field to help them to improve their writing with relationship-based, craft-centered guidance. The Manuscript Evaluation opportunity during our summer workshops has been so popular over the years that we wanted to develop this online connection.

MWW Writing Services will help writers in fiction genres (general, literary, mystery, thrillers, young adult, middle grade, women’s, etc.), and nonfiction, as well as query letters and synopses.

We are proud of our ability to provide these important services to writers at an affordable cost. By focusing on its strengths, its attendees, and the ongoing concerns of what writers need, Midwest Writers Workshop strives to develop significant programs and opportunities, while maintaining a sense of professionalism and dedication to quality.
