On Thursday, January 27th at 7 pm the Adirondack Center for Writing will kick-off a new virtual series called Author Advice, a monthly, informal talk with an author about their personal paths to publication. The event will include an audience Q&A.

In Author Advice, published authors will offer wisdom and experience as they answer audience questions like: How does a manuscript become a physical book? What’s it like working with an agent? Should you self-publish, go indie, submit to contests, or send hundreds of copies to publishing houses all over the country and hope for the best? (Pro tip: don’t do the latter!) The guest author will break down why they did what they did to make their book a reality, and what they learned from the process.

January’s guest is Kate Messner, a writer of dozens of award-winning picture books, easy readers, chapter book series, and novels for young readers. She’ll talk about her myriad publishing experiences and offer advice to attendees looking to get their children’s book or YA novel published. In July 2021, Messner published the best-selling Dr. Fauci: How a Boy from Brooklyn Became America’s Doctor. She lives in the North Country.

Registration is HERE.
