Event Date: June 22, 2016 | Time: 10AM PST / 1PM EST
Join us as Michael Larsen, Literary Agent, discusses Setting Your Publishing Goals.
Born and educated in New York City, Michael Larsen worked in promotion for Bantam, William Morrow, and Pyramid (later assimilated into Berkley). He and his wife Elizabeth Pomada started Larsen-Pomada Literary Agents in San Francisco in 1972. They are members of AAR and have sold books to more than 100 publishers.
Mike believes that now is the best time ever to be a writer. The writers he seeks have the ideas, writing skills, platform, and promotion plan they need to get the best editor, publisher, and deal for their books, or self-publish them successfully.
He is eager to find nonfiction writers who will excite big and midsize houses: how-to’s, self-help, business, personal finance, popular culture, biography, current affairs, history, health, medicine, spirituality, inspirational books, trends, technology, the future, and other books with enduring social, practical or literary value.
He is the author of the fourth edition of How to Write a Book Proposal, and the third edition of How to Get a Literary Agent. With Jay Conrad Levinson, Rick Frishman, and David Hancock, he is co-author of the second edition of Guerrilla Marketing for Writers: 100 Weapons for Selling Your Work. Mike is co-director of the San Francisco Writers’ Conference and the San Francisco Writing for Change Conference. He offers consulting services for nonfiction writers. www.larsenpomada.com.
