About the event

Work-for-hire can be a good way to supplement your writer's income. You'll establish relationships with editors (especially if you turn in your manuscript ahead of deadline!) and potentially have a pipeline to more projects, you'll see your name in print a lot faster than with traditional publishing, you'll experience working with different timelines and publishers, and you may land some exciting and fascinating assignments.

Presenters Stacia Deutsch, Natasha Yim, and Janie Havemeyer have written about topics as varied as Pocahontas, Amelia Earhart, the Lunar New Year, Sacajawea, space, technology, smallpox, Charles Darwin, and movie tie-ins and intellectual properties such as Batman, Lego, Barbie, Mulan, Turning Red, and Lightyear. In this webinar, they'll show you how and where to find publishers and work-for-hire assignments, how to perfect your queries, offer research strategies and tips, and review the business side of things—contracts, fees, and building your resume/portfolio.
