Unicorn Writers' Conference is uniquely designed to arm visionary writers with the practical know-how they need to get their manuscripts through the gatekeepers of the publishing world. Today, between multinational media corporations and global entertainment conglomerates, getting a publisher's attention takes more than a great idea and a flair for the written word. Unicorn Writers' Conference brings together industry insiders to offer rare tutorials on what publishers really care about, including how to market a book,? generate publicity, select artwork, write a query letter, improve writing, and negotiate a book deal. Leading filmmakers and bloggers will give tutorials on how to take advantage of cutting-edge technologies and social media services. Countless networking opportunities will be available throughout the day.
The next conference will be held from 7:30 AM to 8:00 PM on March 25, 2017 at Reid Castle at Manhattanville College. For all the information about our guest agents, editors, and speakers, manuscript review sessions, and workshops please take a look through our site.
