All levels | This daylong intensive seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of the publishing business and opportunities for writers of memoir, adult fiction, and young adult. This class is intended for students who already have some familiarity with the publishing business (you already know the difference between agents and publicists and acquisition editors, you know what the word “platform” means, etc.).
