Revising for Publication
Saturday, May 14
Belvedere Tiburon Library, 1501 Tiburon Blvd., Tiburon, CA
They say the best writing is rewriting but when it’s time to revise your manuscript, it isn’t always easy being objective about your work. Literary agent Elizabeth Kracht from Kimberley Cameron & Associates talks about what she looks for when she begins to read submissions, and how writers can step back from their work and look at the whole project to help them in the revision process. This is sure to be an informative discussion, and will be followed by a Q&A.
Elizabeth Kracht is a literary agent with Kimberley Cameron & Associates. She represents both literary and commercial fiction (including thrillers and mysteries!) as well as nonfiction, and brings to the agency experience as a former acquisitions editor, freelance publicist and writer.
