Paths to Publishing

All Levels | Never have there been so many ways to get your work out into the world as an author, from traditional publishing to Kindle Direct to hybrid publishing and more. But which one is right for you? This course will explain the 2021 publishing landscape and help you decide which path is right for you based on your genre, goals, and other factors.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
