Olga Wajtas, Scottish Book Trust New Writer Awardee
"Super advice – thank you! I really am very, very thankful for Claire’s support as I submit my manuscript to publishers and agents. Not only am I confident my submissions documents are the best they can be, Claire helped me navigate several trickier issues in the submissions process."
"There’s a lot of information out there on submissions, but in practice it comes with complications and very many questions. Claire has made a real difference, with expert advice on genre and agent relationships - and I’ve already had interest in my novel!"
If you have a manuscript ready to submit to publishers and agents, the Submissions Bootcamp has been designed especially for you.
This online course will make sure you follow the most efficient, professional and thorough submissions strategy.
Participants will gain a new and empowering perspective on submitting a manuscript. Your submissions period will be a time of growth, engagement, discovery and focus…each submission making your proposal more appealing to prospective publishers and agents.
Stay motivated, give your manuscript every possible chance, and learn about the publishing industry every step of the way. Put yourself in the best possible position for submissions success.
- Individual feedback on your cover letter and synopsis
- Personal support throughout your submissions period, helping you make sense of publisher / agent feedback and take the appropriate steps once your manuscript is garnering interest
- Access to a closed Facebook group where I will continue to share updates to the course and submission openings, tips and advice.
Modules include: understanding the submissions process, a publisher perspective, developing a confident mindset (or Why too many writers give up too easily – and how not to join them), researching your submissions, submissions documents and submissions etiquette, your online profile, improving your case for submission, staying motivated, responding to publisher interest, FAQs and next steps, submissions for previously self-published writers.
