2013 Book Academy: Writers Under Construction

I'm speaking at the Utah Valley University this coming Tuesday September 24, 2013. Here is a summary of what I'll be covering:

Knowing Your Market — Virginia Grenier
My goal is to help new writers understand the differences between the genres in children's and YA markets, from short stories to full novels. I will also cover how to know which market is right for your work and how to best prepare manuscripts for submission.
This is a wonderful opportunity and I'm truly looking forward to it. I do have to say it is fun being in front of people after all the blog talk radio shows I do. I enjoy speaking because I not only help someone starting out on the writing journey, but I also learn something new each time from each of the writers who attend.

A bit more about this event:
