Developing and Editing Your Manuscript for Publication

An Intensive Writing Workshop with Literary Agent

Elizabeth Kracht

cvrLiterary agent Elizabeth Kracht noticed that many manuscripts being rejected suffered similar, easy-to-solve problems. As a result, she began keeping a list, hoping to one day be able to share this feedback with writers struggling to understand why their work keeps receiving rejections.

Based off her newly released The Author’s Checklist: An Agent’s Guide to Developing and Editing Your Manuscript, this workshop will cover over 100 points for consideration before submitting to an agent, editor, or indie publishing, such as how to sharpen dialogue and prose, improving characterization, complicating plot, and much more.

Elizabeth will also provide a Q&A segment toward the end of each hour to answer questions on individual projects, subject matter covered, and traditional publishing.

Who should attend:

  • Authors who are looking for practical craft tools to help them write their novel or memoir/narrative nonfiction more effectively
  • Authors who are looking for ways to revise their manuscripts to make their characters and stories more emotionally engaging.
  • Authors who have a completed novels or narrative nonfiction that they are about to query and submit to agents
  • Authors who have been querying their novels or narrative nonfiction but have not gotten further requests for more pages
  • Writers with works-in-progress who are looking to make their stories not only more engaging but resonate with agents
  • Experienced and published writers looking to further develop their writing craft.

Don't miss this Intensive Training Workshop where you can learn
how to set your book and yourself on the right road for success!

Workshop Leader : Elizabeth Kracht

Elizabeth Kracht joined Kimberley Cameron & Associates in the fall of 2010 to broaden her perspective on the publishing industry. She represents both literary and commercial fiction as well as nonfiction, and brings to the agency experience as a former acquisitions editor, freelance publicist and writer. 

Elizabeth's career in publishing took root in Puerto Rico where she completed her BA in English and worked as a copyeditor for an English-language newspaper. When she returned to the mainland she found her "vein of gold" in book publishing. She thrives on working closely with authors to build their careers. 

Elizabeth also works as a freelance editor in a unique position to help writers — beginning, intermediate and advanced — on a range of publishing topics, from submission materials and manuscript editorial services, to author platform, contract consulting, and more.

In fiction, she represents literary, commercial, women's, thrillers, mysteries, historical, and crossover YA. In nonfiction, she is interested in high concept, health, science, environment, prescriptive, investigative, true crime, voice- or adventure-driven memoir, sexuality, spirituality, and animal/pet stories.
