Getting Published

You’ve done the writing – what do you do now?  This presentation will help to answer that question and get you started on the path to becoming a published author.

Getting Published for an adult or young adult audience includes:

  • An overview of publishing options; the big six, middle sized publishers, indie publishers, vanity presses, and self publishing
  • Advantages and disadvantages of each publication pathway
  • Determining the best approach for you and your writing project
  • Topics like query letters, rejection, and finding your audience

This power point presentation generally lasts one hour with limited time for questions or discussion.  It can also be expanded into a workshop format with optional manuscript critiques.

I have also done a version of this presentation for younger audiences by following my path to publication through a choose your own adventure format. Tons of fun!

“Thanks again for letting me attend this excellent workshop… I have recommended (it) to others.”
