Your Path to Published (Half-day)

This half-day workshop is directed at fiction and nonfiction writers with a completed manuscript as well anyone curious about how a book becomes published.

Millions of books are published each year. Want yours to be one of those, or are you simply curious as to how a manuscript becomes a published book? Join creative writing professor Jessica Lourey, author of fourteen traditionally-published novels and three self-published ones, for insight into the process. This presentation overviews both traditional- and self-publishing before focusing on the querying process. Attendees will leave with a complete query letter, a list of at least ten appropriate agents to query, and a handout of publishing suggestions and resources. (AV equipment—screen, wireless projector or projector with USB adapter on other end of cord—required.)
