The Publishing Extravaganza Event Hosted By Muskoka Authors Association


For the first time in our region, Muskoka Authors Association, is hosting an all-day one-of-a-kind Publishing Extravaganza Event on Saturday, June 22, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This event will be one of the largest gatherings of professionals related to the publishing industry ever held in Muskoka.

No matter the stage of your writing project, this is a must-attend event where you will hear from industry specialists covering all aspects of the publishing journey.

Publishers will walk you through the publication process (whether you’re looking to publish with a traditional publisher or self-publish) and Literary agents will share the secrets on how to attract an agent and the benefits of being represented by an agency. Also included are special presentations on everything from writing that critical query letter, to the ins and outs of accounting for writers, to marketing your book for maximum impact and more.

There will also be an opportunity for a limited number of participants to have a one-on-one evaluation of 5 pages of their manuscript by a literary agent or publisher. This is a priceless opportunity to avoid the slush pile and get in front of a literary agent or publisher to pitch your work and get vital industry feedback. These spots are offered on a first come first serve basis at a nominal additional charge. You will be advised if your submission will be evaluated and how to submit the fee.

Your registration includes lunch (although we can’t guarantee that special dietary needs can be met).

You won’t want to miss this event if you’re serious about having your work published and out in the world.
