Featured Presentation: Manuscript Formatting & Submission DOs and DON'Ts

Speaker: LeeAnne Krusemark

If your manuscript is formatted or submitted incorrectly, chances are you'll be rejected. Learn the ABCs of formatting articles, poetry, short stories, and different types of books. You'll also learn how to submit digital and/or hard copies of your manuscript properly, as well as find the right publisher or agent who will take a serious look at the manuscript once received.

LeeAnne is an adjunct online Professor of Publishing for Harvard and more than 1,000 other facilities worldwide, and is a nationwide speaker on the topic. She is also a former journalist, editor, and managing editor of newspapers, as well as an author of countless magazine articles and several books on business and publishing.  She has also recently authored a screenplay that Hallmark has expressed an interest in, and has also started representing other writers as an editor and agent. The inspiration she gives to others has even been compared in writing to Oprah!
