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!
