Heidi Taylor Publishing Manager forDeseret Book & Shadow Mountain
Heidi Taylor's Class: Help! I'm stuck in the slush pile and CAN'T GET OUT! Tips on how to get your manuscript noticed.
Overview: Writing is the easy part. Shopping for the publisher is HARD! The purpose of this class is to help writers understand that publishing is a business and that if you approach it that way you'll be able to find a home for your manuscript much easier. This class will give writers tips on how to 'sell' their manuscript in such a way that it won't get lost in the slush pile.
Heidi Taylor has been with Deseret Book for the past nine years. She graduated from the University of Utah where she had the opportunity to study English and Creative Writing with some of the best creative minds in the business. Heidi works as a publishing manager in the areas of children, teen, and young adult fiction and non-fiction where she works one-on-one with authors to acquire and develop their manuscripts from conception to publication. She has had the pleasure of working with New York Times Bestselling author, Brandon Mull, and his Fablehaven series, and Christmas Jar's author, Jason F. Wright, as well as dozens of very talented writers, artists, and designers. She loves searching for diamonds in the slush pile!
