Description I've finished my manuscript. Now what?

Writing your book sometimes can seem like the easy part. But what happens after you've typed "the end" on the last page? This workshop will focus on what happens after the first draft is written, provide tips on revisions and insights into the publishing process.

In this live, interactive workshop you will learn:
• How do you organize your edits?
• What publishing options are out there?
• How do you avoid scams?
• What's it like working with a professional editor?
• Just what happens behind the scenes at a publishing house?

Bring your questions and conundrums--this workshop is about helping you navigate the twisty-turny world that opens up after the manuscript is done.

The event is $10 per person. Cash at the door.

Mary Fan is a sci-fi/fantasy writer hailing from Jersey City, NJ. She is the author of the Jane Colt sci-fi series, which comprises ARTIFICIAL ABSOLUTES (Red Adept Publishing, 2013), SYNTHETIC ILLUSIONS (Red Adept Publishing, 2014), and VIRTUAL SHADOWS. Her works also include several young adult fantasy novellas: THE FIREDRAGON (Glass House Press, 2014), FIREDRAGON RISING (Glass House Press, 2015), TELL ME MY NAME (Glass House Press, 2014), and LET ME FLY FREE (Glass House Press, 2016). These serve as prequels to two full-length series currently under contract with Glass House Press, Flynn Nightsider and Fated Stars.

In addition, Mary is the co-editor (along with fellow sci-fi author Paige Daniels) of Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets, a young adult sci-fi anthology about brainy heroines. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a scholarship fund through the Society of Women Engineers.
