NEW YORK - Aug. 9, 2016 - PRLog -- #1 international best-selling author & CEO of Your Book Is Your Hook, Jennifer S. Wilkov will participate in the 2016 Writers Digest Conference being held this weekend at the New York Hilton located at 1335 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10019. Ms. Wilkov will present a talk on Friday, August 12, 2016 at 11:30am that will be solely focused on how to write the hooks for your book and project. The discussion will provide an in-depth training about why writing the hooks for your project well is just as important as writing a good book and how to do it. The session will also dive into what is needed to succeed with a good hook so industry professionals and others will want to know more about your project. Ms. Wilkov will also be conducting an exclusive "Polish Your Pitch" Clinic during the conference for select writers during which she will review and counsel each individual writer on the pitches they have drafted as they prepare for the conference PitchSlam on Saturday with literary agents, editors, publishers and other industry professionals.

"Authors and writers often don't realize that they will have to answer the question, 'So, what's your project about?' for the rest of their writing careers. To break into the publishing industry, or even make the leap to the entertainment industry, writers need to get clear about what their stories and books are about and how to summarize them quickly and concisely in their query letters and conversations with literary agents and prospective publishers. When done well, the hook should cultivate interest in you and your project and potentially lead to other opportunities such as speaking appearances and or deepen business relationships with prospects and clients, not just sell books," states Jennifer S. Wilkov, CEO of Your Book Is Your Hook ( "There are a number of ways to craft the hook for your project. However, there are so many options that it can become extremely overwhelming and confusing for the writer who often doesn't feel competent when writing the short stuff as a marketer of his or her own projects . A writer with an amazing concept could easily get rejected by the industry or ignored by the audience he or she has targeted when the hook is not intriguing or engaging. I want to prevent that from happening by educating writers and breaking down the cluttered and often conflicting information they find on the Internet or in other trainings into clear actionable steps they can take to really succeed with the hooks for their projects."

Ms. Wilkov's talk will cover topics such as:

• The basics for writing effective hooks for your book
• How to use your hook to get your message out to literary agents and other professionals
• Proven techniques to use your hook for TV producers and the media
• Fool-proof ways to master networking introductions with your hook and book inside and outside of the publishing industry
• Top strategies to leverage your hook for various audiences, opportunities and markets
• The secret to using your book as your "hook" in conversations in your industry, business, organization, project or career
