The Secrets of Writing and Selling Historical Fiction
Transport Your Readers Through Time
We want to be transported when we read for pleasure. Nothing transports us more thoroughly than historical fiction. In this live webinar, literary agent Irene Goodman will share many real life examples of things that work and things that don't work in this particular but beloved form of fiction. Starting with the boundaries (i.e. the 1980's are not "historical"), she will explore the unwritten rules that create successful books as well as the trends that come and go.

All registrants are invited to submit a three-sentence log line, the first two pages of your manuscript, and a 2-page synopsis for critique. All submitted log lines, first two pages, and 2-page synopsis are guaranteed a written critique by agent Irene Goodman.
