Writers Meet a Major Book Editor

Thursday, November 29 , 2018  

6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time (9:00 to 10:30 Eastern Time) — a different time than in-person meetings

Our webinar with Riva Hocherman is accessible to anyone with a computer, and it takes the place of our usual panel in Culver City this month. Enjoy listening in the comfort of your own home, without the hassle of driving at night, looking for a parking spot, or worrying about the weather.

Writers, meet (virtually) an A-list decision-making editor from a Top Five New York publishing house, courtesy of IWOSC!

No matter where you are in your book writing process, you’ll benefit as an author from learning what lies ahead. Our guest will give writers insight into what publishers are looking for, how to improve their book’s chance of being published, and what writers can expect after signing a contract.

This inaugural event stars the legendary RIVA HOCHERMAN, the co-founder (with Sara Bershtel) of Metropolitan Books, and senior editor at Henry Holt Publishing. Working under the greater Macmillan / St. Martin’s banner, Ms. Hocherman has published countless bestsellers and big-name authors. Her specialties are serious non-fiction: history, social sciences, culture, and politics, and she also loves graphic novels. In her capacity at Metropolitan / Henry Holt, however, she has also dealt with commercial and commercial-literary fiction.

The Q&A will be moderated by IWOSC’s own Steven Sanchez and Telly Davidson.
