Join the Authors Guild Foundation and an array of authors and publishing experts for this FREE series of webinars on the path to publication and the business of writing!

What Writers Need to Know About the Publishing Business

Being a successful author requires so much more beyond mastering your craft. After finishing a manuscript, how do you get it published and into the hands of readers? Even experienced authors can need guidance to navigate the ever-evolving world of publishing. From securing an agent to engaging your audience, you need to figure out how to publish and market your books. This series will teach you how to do so while protecting your rights and negotiating fair contracts along the way. We’ll hear from expert panels of authors, lawyers, agents, editors, and marketing professionals who will provide crash courses on the most important aspects of navigating the writing business.

Resources for Your Writing Career

Each online session will provide early to mid-career authors with tools and resources to manage their careers and successfully navigate the marketplace. We will cover the many paths to publication and discuss what to expect from today’s literary marketplace, with special deep-dive sessions devoted to the writing life. You are welcome to join us for as many of these sessions as you would like.
