How to Get Published NYC

You’ve spent months, or years, sweating and swearing over a book and now you’re ready to draw the interest of agents and/or publishing houses. Or perhaps you’re in the midst of writing a book and you want to know the publishing challenges up ahead. The question looms: how do you get a book published?
 
Here you will learn how to navigate the ins-and-outs of the publishing business and you’ll write (and refine) the most important selling tool for your book—the query letter. All under the guidance of an established literary agent.
 
You won’t be told it’s impossible, or that it’s easy. You will, however, gain a realistic understanding of how the process works and how you can maximize your chances for success. 

Notes:

This course deals with all kinds of books—novels, children’s books, and all types of nonfiction books. If you’re working on a nonfiction book, then you may want to start with Nonfiction Book Proposal.
 
Though self-publishing is touched on, the focus is on getting published with a traditional publisher.
