Want to get your book published through a traditional publisher with a book contract? Join our seven publishers to find out what they’re looking for in a manuscript, how to contact them, and how to best position your book in terms of genre or category. They’ll provide an overview of the state of the industry, particularly in the current situation of the pandemic, and give sage advice on how to get your book published. With publishers and editors
