Wednesday WiP with Jozef Syndicate
Nov 27 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Let’s have a confidential conversation about your Work in Progress. During this invitation-only session, you can freely share your work, brainstorm the next paragraph or scene, explore ideas on the entire project, vet ideas for sources, or yell at passages that have you stuck.
 
Our literary editors are here to listen, challenge, and help move you to the next step of your WIP–whether the goal is to submit your work to a contest, literary agent, grantor, or publishing house. This is a free service and with no other obligations. I will not sell anything to you during this time. 
 
Wednesday WIP is your personal coaching time. Let’s explore the crevices of your work together monthly so that you can publish your dream.  To request an invite, email books at jozefpa dot com. Follow us on social media @JozefSyndicate and #WednesdayWiP
