Everyone who participates will get a $50 credit toward any Mediabistro course direct messaged to them. The five best tweets will get a $100 credit toward any Mediabistro course. The winner of the best tweet will get a free Mediabistro course. Follow this link for all the details.
Here is more detail about the Writing and Selling Your First Book course that starts next week: “Laura Mazer has helped many first-time writers get book deals, and she will share her secrets to help you finish, pitch, and sell a brilliant first book project. She will answer questions about how to break into book publishing and assignments will help you hone your book idea and elevator pitch and put you on the path to selling your book.”
