How to Break into Publishing with Author Hannah GoodmanHannah_Goodman
Breaking into the publishing world is nearly impossible…if you don’t understand the process. In this discussion, I will share my own journey, reveal what works and what doesn’t, and offer tips for success. Topics include: the monetary realities of a first book deal, self-publishing as a starting (and/or finishing) point, how to approach an agent, whether to submit directly to a publisher, as well as how to use contests, conferences, or MFA programs as a “foot-in-the-door."

Registration is strongly encouraged. Please email or call 455-8057 and leave your name and contact information.

Please bring cash, check, or money order with you on the day of class. Exact change is always appreciated.
