You’ve put the final period on your manuscript. (Or you're working your way there...) Congratulations! Now you're ready to get published. In today’s publishing market, there are more options than ever for an author to see their work in print (and, of course, as an ebook). But which is best for you?

 

In this interactive workshop, we’ll chat about the many paths to publishing. We’ll discuss the need for an agent and how to approach agents and publishers, including how to write a successful query letter.

 

From a traditionally published author and a literary agent, you’ll hear the insiders’ perspective on getting published. We’ll discuss the different types of publishing houses, from traditional to hybrid to self-publishing platforms, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks of each. We’ll provide an overview of the publishing industry today.

 

We will delve into some of the most common questions. But come with your own!

 

  • Should I seek representation (try to find an agent)?

  • Should I spurn the traditional route and self-publish?

  • Or should I stick with traditional, but find an indie press (most don’t require an agent)?

  • What’s this newfangled thing in-between, a hybrid press?
