1-Day Publishing Seminar
Wednesday, May 9 | 7 – 9 p.m.

Got a novel? A memoir? A great idea for a narrative nonfiction work on the secret history of butterflies?

This seminar will cover the fundamentals of getting your manuscript published to its fullest potential. Pairing participant feedback with guidance from a book industry perspective, we’ll explore the publishing path from agent pitch to book launch.
Topics Include:

  • How do I pitch my book in 50 words or less?
  • Do I need an agent, and if so, how do I find the right one?
  • What happens to my manuscript once it’s acquired, and how involved will I be during the editing and design process?
  • How do publicity and marketing work, and how can I help out?

Bring your books, bring your questions, and we’ll talk strategy together in a fun, supportive environment.
