How to Pitch Your Book Idea/What Editors Really Want, 4/16
How to Pitch Your Book Idea/What Editors Really Want, 4/16

WHAT: Two workshops:

How to Pitch Your Book Idea
Pitching a book idea in a single sentence is an essential skill most
writers lack, and one they especially need in order to impress agents
and editors at writing conferences. Topics discussed include: why
pitching is important; how to formulate a winning pitch; and the three
most common mistakes writers make when pitching their book idea.

What Editors Really Want
Writers who master the business of publishing are more likely to be
successfully published than writers who only master the craft of
writing. Topics discussed include: why writing conferences are a
better investment than M.F.A. programs; the supreme importance of a
platform; and the three most common mistakes writers make when dealing
with editors.

In addition, I will conduct one-on-one manuscript review sessions.

WHEN: How to Pitch Your Book Idea - 9am, April 16
What Editors Really Want - 2pm, April 16

WHERE: The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Spring Writers Festival,
UWM School of Continuing Education, 161 W. Wisconsin Avenue,
Milwaukee, WI

WHO: Marcela Landres is an Editorial Consultant who works one-on-one
with writers providing developmental editing for manuscripts,
critiques for book proposals, and strategic advice on how to launch
and maintain a successful writing career. She was formerly an editor
at Simon & Schuster for seven years, and she speaks frequently for
organizations such as The Learning Annex and Columbia University. She
has been interviewed as a publishing expert by the media, including
The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, and The Boston Globe.

Worth for Humanity
Gospel music artist Tracy Worth joins women and faith groups to help Habitat for Humanity build homes with families in need. Serenity Entertainment national recording artist Tracy Worth is joining Habitat for Humanity International to swing a hammer and raise awareness with families in need of a simple, decent place to live.

Worth will partner with churches under Habitat's "Faith Works" special events program that brings people of faith together to fundraiser and help build homes. She will also join teams of women construction crews for Habitat's "Women Build" programs around the country.

"Habitat for Humanity has a special ministry that touches not only the lives of the families it serves but also the volunteers who give their time to help," says Worth. "I am so happy to work closely with Habitat in a way that will get more people involved so they can experience the power of Habitat's ministry."

Habitat for Humanity International, based in Americus, Ga., is a Christian ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing. By the end of 2005, Habitat will have built its 200,000th house and more than one million people will be living in Habitat homes they helped build and are buying through no-profit, zero-interest mortgages.

Touching All Communities "Adopt-a-Family"
Touching All Communities "Adopt-a-Family"
Milwaukee get ready for your SUPREME blessing for the Lord!

Fresh off the GMWA Board Meeting in Las Vegas last week, SGEM associates quickly began refocusing its outreach endeavors towards Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Over the last two Touching All Communities "Adopt-a- Family" (On the Road) outreaches, artists including Rodney Posey, RiZen, Lucinda Moore, Eugene Cole, DeWayne Woods and various professional athletes have sown into the vision God gave to SGEM by sharing their talents with others.

With surprise artists (to be publicized in forthcoming press releases) for the concert and special guests for the celebrity basketball game, the 3rd annual TAC "Adopt-a-Family" (On the Road) will be nothing short of amazing. Since its inception in 1998, Philadelphia based Supreme Gospel Entertainment & Ministries has not only promoted great Gospel artists across the country but fed and clothed the homeless, financially assisted needy families with utilities, provided children with school supplies, visited elderly in nursing facilities as well as hosted conferences, workshops and showcases that empowered, uplifted and increased the self morale of youth, adults and the entire community overall.

This years line up of events include a Celebrity Basketball Game, Financial Planning Seminar, and Concert. See you there!
