In this series, we’ll cover techniques for effective agent and publisher research, the nitty-gritty details of formatting your manuscript for submission (with detailed demos), and 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, and how to stand up for yourself in writing without being a jerk.
