Join book publisher Paul Cohen and writer Anne McGrath for insights into every aspect of book publishing—from manuscript to royalty payments.

Paul Cohen invites you to join him and Ann McGrath to walk through each step of book publishing.

As an author today, you have unprecedented control over how your book is published. But what good is that control without the knowledge of how best to implement it?

A firm understanding of book publishing empowers you in your writing process and in your negotiations with publishers, whether you're a seasoned or aspiring author.

This seminar, led by poet/writer Anne McGrath and leading book publisher Paul Cohen, shares the insider information you need to bring your book into the world.

You learn to:

  • Write effective queries to publishers
  • Create persuasive book proposals
  • Negotiate a book contract
  • Understand book distribution
  • Avoid publishing scams

Travel through the publishing process—from manuscript to publicity to royalty payments—and leave with a clear path to publication.
