Overview:  If you want to get published, there's a secret you need to know. It's a secret few writing teachers speak about, and fewer still teach. What is this secret? Voice. It's the one quality of writing that both agents and editors often cite as the reason they accept or reject books. Some teachers throw up their hands in exasperation and say voice can't even be defined let alone taught, but I disagree. If your writing has a true, distinctive voice, you will stop traffic. Like the creatures of the forest who fell under the spell of Orpheus when he played and sang, a strong and unselfconscious voice in your writing will seduce editors and agents from their busy schedules.


About Peter Rubie: 

Peter Rubie, the CEO of FinePrint Literary Management, is an agent who specializes in a broad range of high-quality fiction and non-fiction, and a “sucker” for outstanding writing. A former BBC Radio and Fleet Street journalist, he served as the director of the publishing section of the New York University Summer Publishing Institute and was a member of the NYU faculty for 10 years. Prior to becoming an agent, he was a publishing house editor for nearly six years. A member of AAR, Rubie regularly lectures and writes on publishing and the craft of writing. He is the author of two published novels, ten non-fiction books and was once a professional jazz musician.


Prize Will be Awarded to One Lucky Attendee

One lucky attendee will receive a free copy of WRITES OF PASSAGE: ADVENTURES ON THE WRITER’S JOURNEY, a Sisters in Crime publication edited by Hank Phillippi Ryan. The path of a writing career can be rocky and twisty and full of dead ends. But it’s also well-traveled-and in Writes of Passage, fifty-eight mystery authors offer the secrets that helped them navigate their success.
