Publishing is a minefield of unknowns. It can be difficult to know which questions to ask, let alone how to find the answers. Should you hire a copy editor? Do you have to go to conferences? What is querying? How do you know whether an agent is any good? What did the editor really mean by that feedback? This course takes you from A to Z. Students will walk through the publication process and have the opportunity to ask questions.
