about Publishing and Publicity

December 30, 20:00-22:00

Talpiyot, Jerusalem

Are you writing a book about Israel or with Jewish content and want to know where to pitch it?

Have you published a book and now need to let the world know about it?

Do you need an author platform before you start touting your manuscript to publishers? How do you build an author platform?

Receive advice from Gila Green (who has three novels coming out over the next twelve months) on how to secure publishing deals with traditional publishers in the USA & Australia, how to negotiate your contract, and how to grow your author platform and web presence. With over 30 stories published in literary magazines, she has a wealth of tips on how to get your shorter fiction published. Her second novel, Passport Control has just been released.

Annette Gendler will share her experience with a hybrid publisher and standard book publicist for her memoir Jumping Over Shadows, and why she’s seriously considering self-publishing her next project. While she’s had several pieces published in literary magazines, she has her own take on that: The Year I Gave Up Submitting to Literary Magazines, and will guide you on markets for your short work.
