Apparently, there are fields in which I could be considered an “expert,” like podcasting, creative writing, querying, and stuff like that. All of these services can be found on Gotham Writers website.
I’m also a professional proofreader, having spent time working at literary agencies and small presses as a line editor. Again, refer to the Gotham Writers website.
Don’t believe me? Listen to my students:
“Josh was a great instructor. I certainly feel that my writing has improved.”
“Josh Sippie is a god damn fucking legend… I’ve been writing for over 10 years, but a few sessions with him and I was given a direction I never had before.”
“Looking forward to many more classes with Josh. Gold Medal in teaching.”
“Josh was genuinely amazing. Positive and present at all times.”
“Josh is a great instructor. He gave constructive feedback and explained every assignment clearly. I would definitely take another class with him!”
I am well-versed in how to approach the querying process. You can get a glimpse in my article, “How To Stop Worrying And Love The Query,” at the Writer Magazine, where I go into as much detail as 2500 words can provide.
I’m happy to share my expertise as a consultant throughout the querying process, from crafting the query, to gathering and planning a list of agents, to how to handle rejection. I’ll walk you through all the resources you should be familiar with—Publishers Marketplace, QueryTracker, Manuscript Wishlist, etc.
It’s a long, arduous process that can be hard to handle alone, so if you are looking for assistance getting through it, you’ve come to the right person. I have years upon years working in this capacity at the New York Pitch Conference and the Gotham Writers Conference.
Feel free to message me for more details on how I can help!
