Workshop in NYC for Jewish Children’s Writers

WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE?: 3 Literary Agents, 3 Opinions

You have written a children’s or YA manuscript that you are excited
about. You would love to get it published, but where do you go from
here? We think we can help!

We are three literary agents (Andrea Cascardi of Transatlantic
Literary Agency, Anna Olswanger of Liza Dawson Associates, and Ann
Tobias of A Literary Agency for Children’s Books) who specialize in
children’s books and who are in daily touch with our clients and their
publishers. We have devised a new workshop called Where Do I Go From
Here?: 3 Literary Agents, 3 Opinions.

We offer this new one-day workshop to help those who are trying to
make sense of the publishing world. The day will include discussions
of attendees’ partial manuscripts (which will be sent to the 3 Agents
in advance of the workshop) and a general Q&A session. We will also
cover such topics as the search for an agent/and or publisher,
marketplace considerations, writing tips and critique groups.

Our previous workshops have all been a sell-out. Here are a few
comments from the participants:

“It was a great pleasure to be with other writers and hear all of your
critiques. The day gave me much to think about, both in terms of
children’s writing in general and my own work in particular. Thanks so
much to all of you.”

“Since this was my first professional critique session, I wasn’t too
sure what to expect. However, I got a tremendous amount out of it-both
personally in terms of your direct feedback and also indirectly in
terms of your feedback to others.”

“The information you provided was very helpful and sometimes
surprising. I was impressed with your balanced and supportive comments
regarding our work. You gave me a lot to think about as I revise my

“It was very refreshing to meet three literary agents and hear them
speak. They were not fierce! In fact, they were very nice and helpful.
I have so many invaluable notes from the workshop. It was helpful to
get three different viewpoints about my work. I loved the workshop and
I would do it again.”

Register early for the special rate of $295. Group size is limited.
