Editors, Agents, and Publishers—The Business of Writing: Seminar

Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States

Mark and Joanna demystify how the business of publishing actually works, something every writer needs to understand.

In addition to creative talent, every writer needs to posses some degree of business acumen to succeed as a published author. Understanding the roles of editors, agents, and publishers—and their interactions together—is a puzzle to unravel for your own writing style and marketplace.

This seminar, co-taught by Mark Bryant and Joanna Hurley, provides you with a comprehensive and action-oriented overview designed to deconstruct and make understandable the oft-times overwhelming business world of the written word.

Mark and Joanna, veterans of magazine and book publishing, demystify the process with in-depth discussions on the author-agent relationship, the author-editor relationship, and how to find and navigate both. They cover the best ways to break into magazine and online writing—either as a step toward book writing or an end in itself—as well as the myriad of options available to writers today to publish their books, from working with traditional publishers, smaller presses, packagers, print-on-demand, and e-books.

Guest speakers, including bestselling authors and a distinguished agent and publisher, lend their invaluable insights throughout the day to ensure that you leave the seminar with a clear path to assessing the commercial potential of your work.

Tuition includes one lunch.
