Part of our ongoing program: “Writers @ Work: Managing the Business of Being an Author”
DATES: Monday, April 1 & Monday, April 8
TIME: 7pm – 8:30pm
LOCATION: Open Book Bookstore
This two-part workshop is for writers who are far enough along on their writing projects that they are ready to begin to plan how to bring their book to market. Lynn Rosen, long-time book editor and former literary agent, will teach them about the “publishing chain,” how a book gets published in both the traditional way and via self-publishing. Then we’ll take a look at the specifics of each participant’s project. Class members will be given guidance on next steps, along with homework projects specific to their work, which we will then work with in the second part of the workshop. Students will make significant progress on their way to publication in this two-part series.
