What do you need to know about publishing a book and when do you need to know it? What do agents, publishers, editors, marketers and designers bring to the process? And how has the traditional model of book publishing been affected by the growth of digital publishing, small presses and self-publishing?
In this two-day course, you will meet publishing experts and veterans – and get a sense of what it takes to get your manuscript from the bottom of your desk drawer to a reader’s bedside table.
