If the thought of publishing a book makes you feel like a scratchy wad of tangled twine, this class will smooth you out. From initial inspiration to book-in-hand, you will walk through a survey of how your material becomes a book and makes it way to press. Grab a notebook, bring your questions, and come clear out the fog.

What we will explore:

  • Overview of the publishing process & its tracks
  • Publishing industry role players
  • Flow chart from first draft to release date
  • Timeline to finished book

Who should attend?

  • People who’ve been told they have a book in them
  • Writers working on a manuscript
  • Debut authors

Stephanie Barko, Literary Publicist shepherds projects for traditional publishers and their authors, small presses, and independently published authors. In 2011, she was voted Preditors & Editors Best Book Promotion Service.
