You sat at your computer eating jellybeans and writing for hours, weeks, months, years. You’ve written something you’re proud of. This book is a thing of beauty; you need to find a publisher who loves your work. But how? Shall you wander the halls of AWP? Search online? Go to New York? Call your aunt who knows a lot of stuff? In this one-day session, we will create a plan for every member of the class for how you are going to find a publisher.

This class may be moved online for some or all sessions depending on the COVID-19 public health guidelines and Hugo House’s current in-person program policy. We are monitoring the situation daily. Hugo House prioritizes the health of our students and staff.
