Breaking Out of the Slush Pile

You’ve finished your manuscript and you’ve polished it and had it beta-read and you’re absolutely sure that it’s ready to send out the door.


Filled with enthusiasm and confidence, you submit your novel or short story to a publisher and it lands in…the dreaded slush pile! Cue scary music.

But the submissions process doesn’t have to be scary.

Hidden Timber Books is excited to bring you another Webinar for authors with a manuscript in hand, ready to hit SEND.

Join publisher and editor Catherine Lundoff of Queen of Swords Press to learn more about what editors and publishers look for in submissions. She’ll walk you through ways to make your submission stand out (in a good way!) and increase your chances of escaping the slush.

Sunday, February 9, 2019 | ONLINE 1:00-2:30pm Central | $50
