Paul Fedorko

Is Writing the Easy Part?

This one-day workshop answers all about agents, editors, publishers, and the mysteries of what happens after writing is done, but before it is published. Paul’s passion is helping authors to develop projects and partnering them with the right editor and publisher.

Some questions we will answer: * Is that really the title? * How do I get an agent? * What do I do when an agent passes on my project? * When can I celebrate? * Who do I thank?


Paul has a wealth of experience in the publishing industry and understands transactions from both sides, as he has worked as an agent and as a publishing executive. Prior to joining N.S. Bienstock, Inc. Paul was a literary agent at Trident Media Group, ran the Paul Fedorko Agency, and before that was a publishing and marketing executive at Bantam Doubleday Dell, Simon & Schuster and William Morrow. He worked with many well-known names as well as first-time authors.
