About this course:

Self-publishing has opened new opportunities for writers who want to take control of making their work commercially available to readers. But while technological advances in typesetting, printing, and distribution have made it possible to create self-published books on par with their traditionally published counterparts, understanding how to navigate the complex book publishing industry is still necessary for success. This course explores how self-publishing fits within the greater book publishing industry. Students learn best practices for self-published book production, marketing, sales, and distribution. Guest lecturers include industry experts and successful self-published authors. Instruction focused on all genres of book publishing including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for adult, young adult, and children’s literature.
