This seminar, led by a longtime independent book editor, helps you transition from being a prose writer or poet who is publishing individual works to becoming the author of a book. You explore the vast changes occurring in the publishing business and how, as a proactive writer, you can make them work for you; how to answer the five questions every publishing professional will ask about your book; how the practice of literary citizenship can benefit your book project, your career, and the overall culture; and how you can chart your own path to getting your words between covers and into the hands of readers.
