Publishing For Writers

Publishing for Writers is a 6-credit specialized diploma designed to prepare aspiring authors for their path to publication. In the two courses, students will not only learn about the traditional publishing industry, but they will also learn about the process of self-publication, preparing for publication, acquiring a literary agent and/or editor, the publishing industry at large and networking. Some of the experiential learning components are writing and submitting query letters and synopses to literary agents and/or publishing house editors based on genre and type of publication, creating goal-oriented timelines and plans for a successful career as an author for both traditional and/or self-publishing. A completed manuscript or publishable work is helpful, but not required. Those that are in the process of writing their book are also welcome!
