“Lessons Learned: Four Things I Wish I’d Known at the Start of My Writing Career” with Jane K. Cleland

Learn from Jane’s experience! From mastering specific craft techniques to implementing efficient promotional strategies (and skipping the rest) and from building meaningful relationships to navigating the complexities of the publishing business, this workshop discusses four crucial lessons all authors need to know, and that most only learn the hard way. There’ll be time at the end for questions.

Jane K. Cleland writes both fiction and nonfiction, including the multiple award-winning Josie Prescott Antiques Mysteries (St. Martin’s & Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine) and the Agatha-award-winning bestsellers, Mastering Suspense, Structure & Plot, and Mastering Plot Twists (Writer’s Digest Books). Jane Austen’s Lost Letters, the 14th in her series, was published in December 2022. She is a member of the full-time faculty at Lehman College, part of the City University of New York, a contributing editor for Writer’s Digest Magazine, and the chair of the Wolfe Pack’s Black Orchid Novella Award (BONA) in partnership with Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. She is a frequent workshop leader and guest author at writing conferences, association meetings, and MFA Residencies.
