This website and blog is dedicated to helping you master the conference submission process. You’ll learn
what goes into writing different parts of your submission package and how to do it right. There's information on
queries, cover letters, book proposals, article and manuscript formats, genre tips, meeting with faculty, making
the most of your conference, conference links, resources, a glossary, and more. Plus samples of queries, proposals,
and manuscript formats. Contributors include conference faculty, editors, publishers, agents, and experienced
writers. This website will always be a work-in-progress. Feedback and comments are always welcome.
