“Hannah is my North Star when it comes to all things writing and publishing. No matter the genre you’re interested in, Hannah can provide tips and best practices for sharpening your plot, developing your characters, and ultimately taking your manuscript out into the (sometimes terrifying) world of publishing. From drafting query letters to promoting your book (and yourself!), you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone lovelier or more willing to share their expertise with aspiring writers.” — Genevieve Wheeler, author of Adelaide
“Hannah was so instrumental to my publishing process. She is an absolute wealth of knowledge and was so generous in sharing her own experience with me, and had such thoughtful insight on the industry at large. If you feel lost and don’t know where to start, start here!” — Becca Freeman, author of The Christmas Orphans Club
“Hannah’s guidance on next steps after writing a book was invaluable. She covered everything from how to write a query letter, to finding agents that are a good fit for your story, to how to handle The Call when you get an offer of representation. When I attended her class over a year ago, I knew very little about the publishing industry from the writer’s perspective, but her advice gave me the confidence and encouragement to start the querying process and now I have an agent and am on submission with my debut (fingers crossed) novels!” — Annie McQuaid, workshop student
“I took Hannah’s workshop on how to find an agent a few years ago, as I was putting the finishing touches on my proposal. Her guidance was so helpful in navigating the agent process. I knew which questions to ask, how to ensure the agent was the right fit, and ultimately ended up getting representation from an agent who helped me strengthen my proposal and chart a way forward. The path to publishing is such a challenge. Truly. And Hannah has been a constant voice of knowledge and compassion with me through my journey.” — Ambika Gautam Pai, workshop student
