From query letters to follow up emails, from fielding requests from bloggers to raising concerns with an agent, the life of an author or illustrator is filled with communication – and your ability to express yourself clearly and professionally has a huge impact on your career, whether you are brand-new to publishing or have several books in print. In this session, we’ll cover best practices for communicating professionally in a digital world, including writing effective query and cover letters, following up on submissions, dealing with emotionally charged topics, communicating with publishing professionals, bloggers, fans, and peers, and how to stand up for yourself in writing without being a jerk.
