    Speaking as someone who couldn’t get picked up, even with a Prometheus nomination:

    If you want a mainstream publisher to pick up your book, you have to network. You need to bypass slush piles by having someone already known to the PTB push and recommend your work. So yeah, this is probably worthwhile. It isn’t a guarantee by any means, but it will improve the odds from you’ve-gotta-be-effing-kidding to hell-may-be-getting-chilly . Getting into writers’ circles with established names should help, too.

    It might work better for Fantasy/Sci-Fi writers.

    Sorry, I can’t comment on Killer Nashville, other than it looks like fun to me. I can highly suggest the Odyssey Writing Workshop for either beginners or veteran writers. I went in 2001, and have a few stories either published and available, or currently at the publisher, as well as a couple of credits in RPG supplements. One of our alumni is Carrie Vaughn, author of the NY Times best-selling Kitty Norville series. Some of the guest writers-in-residence have included Carrie Vaughn, GRR Martin, Harlan Ellison, and during my class, Terry Brooks.

    I should mention, though, that Odyssey is 6 weeks long, rather than just a weekend.

    Is this for the same guy you where trying to help buy a sedan?
