On May 26 and 27, 2020, PREE’s Publishing Studio will help bring writers to the next stage in their project… to be published.

- – How you know your manuscript is finished
- – How to choose an agent
- – How to submit your manuscript to agents
- – How the publishing process works
- – How to position your work in the publishing arena
- – How to understand what advice good is and where to push back
