Get guidance from literary agents and publishing insiders through Lucinda Literary’s exclusive online courses.

The Lucinda Literary Membership

You Have A Good Book Idea. We Can Make It Great.

Our Gold members enjoy group coaching sessions from Lucinda Halpern, president of Lucinda Literary, every 3 weeks, allowing you time to revise and receive adequate review from Lucinda while keeping a strong cadence. At the end of 6 sessions, and Lucinda’s query review, our goal is to have you set and prepped to get your book to market.

We only allow 6 writers into each group, by application only, to make sure you’re a fit for Lucinda’s expertise and the other writers in the group. As a small group, writers benefit from a ton of personal attention and ongoing support. Gold members also receive 365 days of access to all of our events, our signature courses, our VIP Facebook community, exclusive video conversations with publishing insiders and more.


Our silver membership offers 365 days of access to all of our live events, all of our courses, our VIP Facebook community, exclusive video conversations with publishing insiders and more. Get expert advice on the market for your book and winning strategies for selling it. Enjoy the support of our community for a full year.


For writers with schedule or budgetary limitations, our Bronze members receive all of our workshops on demand, signature courses, and exclusive video conversations with publishing insiders. Leave with expert advice on the market for your book and winning strategies for selling it.

“[Lucinda’s program is] packed with valuable information, insider insights, and actionable tips. Most importantly, it delivered on its promise—I did indeed get signed with an agent and landed a book deal with a major publishing house! I definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to successfully navigate the publishing process. Lucinda is the best.”
—Dr. Mary Anderson

“Lucinda’s courses are an invaluable resource for authors facing the daunting task of getting their book to market. [Her programs] were well-organized, crammed with important information and absolutely worth the fee. Lucinda Halpern is highly experienced, giving and perceptive — in short, she’s the real deal!”
—Peter Melnick

“Lucinda’s prowess? She is able to guide a creative person’s mind–which fires in a million divergent directions–towards a single, poignant, powerful idea…and then helps refine the idea to ensure it resonates with readers. Masterful!”
