I’ll be teaching a class on traditional publishing this month, over at the Vancouver Public Library. This is part of the “Write On” event going on, which is an all day event, full of classes and workshops.

Here’s the write-up:

How to Get a Book Deal: The Path to Traditional Publishing 

The publishing process can be overwhelming. Local fantasy author, E. Latimer, goes over some of the more complicated terminology, and the ins and outs of the publishing industry. Get a behind-the-scenes look at everything from querying and getting an agent, to the process of submitting to the ‘big five’ publishing houses and finally signing on the dotted line.

The class runs from 10:30-12:00,  in the Peter Kaye room, on the lower level.
