Break In with

Work-for-Hire Webinar


Saturday, April 13, 2019

9:30 am – 11 am (Pacific Time)

Registration is now closed. 



Wouldn’t it be nice if editors approached you asking if you’re available to write a book?

That’s the reality of the work-for-hire market. 

Join us for an informative and lively session on breaking in through work-for-hire. Capstone Senior Managing Editor Christine Peterson will give you the inside scoop on how to approach a work-for-hire house, what to send to them and how to be successful. Whether you’re interested in writing fiction or non-fiction, this is the workshop for you. 

This is a webinar using Zoom platform. Event will be recorded. Paid attendees may view live or view the recording for two weeks after the event. 


Christine Peterson is currently a senior managing editor, curriculum strategy, with Capstone, a publisher of K-8 children’s books and digital solutions for libraries, classrooms, and consumers headquartered in Mankato, MN. Christine has been with Capstone for 16 years, and has specialized in nonfiction content for K-5 students, including supplemental nonfiction texts, guided reading and literacy support materials, and curriculum instruction. Christine lives in Mankato with her husband and two children.
