Sylvia Plath wrote, “Nothing stinks like a pile of unpublished writing,” but how do you move your work from the desk to the world? What’s an agent, and do you need one? In this course, we demystify the new world of publishing. We’ll explore publishing options, including self-publishing, hybrid, small press, and big publishing. We’ll talk about the specific steps necessary to submit your work, and what you can expect both personally and financially. You’ll leave with resources for submission and a query draft you can use to start getting your work into the world.
