The Many Ways to be a Writer

Those with writerly aspirations often believe there is a single path to the writer’s life: write book, find agent, get publishing deal, get on Oprah. Maybe throw an MFA and teaching in there. This is a great road if it gets you to your destination. However, there are many ways to be a writer—and even make a living at it. We will discuss the literary path but also work-for-hire, self-publishing, essays, and more. You’ll gain tips on managing your expectations, getting started, being professional, promoting yourself, getting  paid, and creating your very own writer’s life.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
