“An educational, top-down, thorough workshop of the ins-and-outs of the cookbook publishing world. Seasoned professionals in the industry who know what they are talking about!” – McKenzie Ellis, of Low Salt Kitchen

“I was amazed at how much I didn’t know about writing a cookbook. This was an excellent first step for anyone, from those considering to those with a solid concept.” – Jessica Formicola, of Savory Experiments

“[Lisa and Sally] present a fundamental insight into the world of publishing, with honesty and humor. They also cover the finer points of pitching, publicity, design, and team building, in a clear and concise way. As a food blogger with the goal of publishing a cookbook, this seminar is an excellent introduction, and the Lisa Ekus Group is the perfect place to start down this path!” – Jessie-Sierra Ross, of Straight to the Hips Baby

“Sally and Lisa made the sessions lively, engaging and brought their individual styles and perspective on each topic. This workshop provided clarity and a holistic view on all aspects of the cookbook proposal writing along with their valuable inputs and unique perspective from reviewing countless proposals as literary agents.” – Sapna Punjabi, of beSPICED

“It’s rare that you get the opportunity to learn from a seasoned literary agent about what to do and not to do in order to make your cookbook dreams a reality. After Sally’s workshop, I created a cookbook proposal, became a client of The Ekus Group and sold my book to a publisher! I can honestly say that I’m not sure this would’ve been possible without Sally’s workshop!” – Natalie Rizzo, of Greenletes
