Book Publishing 1-2-3


Grab a pen and join us for this lively, inspiring class—we’ll peek at today’s book business (including self-publishing), share ideas for connecting with agents and editors, suggest how writers can improve their craft, and wrap up with a few simple tips on marketing and promotion.

Other highlights: Q&A; writing prompts to help stretch creativity; four-page handout; quick case study using “Tracking Gobi Grizzlies” to show how a rumor about the world’s rarest animal became an online article and then an award-winning work of nonfiction.

Monday • April 23rd • 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Downtown Library • 224 Church St.
