You've Finished the Book--Now What? Guidance and Strategies for Becoming a Published Author

We’re sorry but Section One for spring is now full/closed. If you wish to be added to the wait list, please send an email to us at kf38@nyu.edu. We will contact you by email if a space becomes available. The wait list is for spring semester only.
With all the time, effort, education, and artistry that goes into writing a book, you would think writing it would be the hardest part. Many authors, however, find the next steps for publishing their work to be overwhelming, confusing, and contradictory. In this course, veteran literary agent, Kate McKean, will guide you through the publishing landscape to better prepare you for your creative career. Learn about literary agents, querying methods, contracts and book deals, the publishing process, and so much more. By the end of this workshop, you will have the strategy, knowledge, and confidence to take your book to the next level.
