CAN THIS MANUSCRIPT BE SAVED

INSTRUCTOR: Susan Meier

WHEN: September 6 to September 19

WORKSHOP: Can This Manuscript Be Saved? Rejected? Can't get an agent? Can't

sell, even though your critique partners LOVE your work? Susan Meier reviews

the seven most common rejection catch phrases and explains why you and even

your critique partners can't spot them, then shows how determining whether

your book's trouble is a story, scene or word problem is the first step on

the road to recovery.

Following the assignments at the end of each lesson, attendees will learn

how to "skim-read" their manuscripts quickly, marking specific problems with

post-its. Susan also demonstrates how to use a storyboard, a list of twenty

and a one-paragraph blurb to create a plan of attack for fixing your book's

trouble.

Susan can't revise or rewrite your manuscript for you, but with her tricks

you'll not only see how to revise the book of your heart; you'll also see

how published authors are able to write four, five and even six books a year

without breaking a sweat!
