How I Got Published
How does a manuscript go from a pile of pages to a finished book?
Whether working with a trade publisher or going it alone, focusing on print or digital media, navigating the world of contemporary publishing can be daunting for new and emerging writers. Following the unique journeys of three successful Queensland authors—John Birmingham, Rachel Amphlett, and Krissy Kneen—this course explores the essential knowledge writers need to confidently engage with both trade (or traditional) and independent (or self) publishing industries. Give yourself a terrific opportunity to find your audience.
In this course, you will learn:
- How trade and independent publishing models work
- How publishers turn a manuscript into a finished product
- What the elements of book design are, and how they communicate to the reader
- How to build a sustainable career as a trade, independent, or hybrid author
- What to look for in contracts, what the warning signs are, and when to walk away.
