Moving one’s writing from personal to published can be overwhelming to first time writers. With the number of writers increasing and the number of readers decreasing, the realities of the publishing world have made it harder for writers to get their work out there. This seminar will address the challenges that undiscovered writers face today, as well as tips on how to get one’s work out there. While this seminar won’t guarantee a writer’s launch onto the best seller’s list, it will provide basic tips for understanding the system. Topics that will be addressed: 1. Fiction vs. Nonfiction 2. The importance of Literary Journals 3. Magazines 5. Maximizing opportunities through using Technology 6. Community 7. Finding an agent 8. Small vs. large publishing houses 9.
