Writer's Union Seminar - Writing As a Professsion: How to Get Published and Survive as an Author

March 31, 2006

On February 28th, I attended a seminar the Canadian Writer's Union was putting on at the Vancouver Public Library. I have to say this was one of the better $40 I've spent in a while.

The most interesting things I learned were

  • tax information - gotta start saving those receipts!
  • what to expect in the hunt for an agent and editor - I knew about the rejection bit :-) but the fact that rejection can take up to a year to arrive was news to me
  • how long the whole process takes once you start working with professionals for edits - when you think you're done, you still have a year or two to go!

Overall this provides ammunition for me against those people who said "why don't you just take a two-month sabbatical from work to get this done?". It's a long haul, people. A long haul.
