ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
There’s no single path towards publication — you can query an agent and get picked up by a traditional publisher, you can work with a small press, or you can take on both the writing and publishing responsibilities and build your career as a self-published author. This course will outline all of the available paths to publication for both fiction and nonfiction writers, offer the pros and cons of each, and give you actionable next steps for whichever path you choose.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Nicole Dieker is a freelance writer, the editor of The Billfold, and the host of the Writing & Money podcast. Her work has appeared in Boing Boing, Popular Science, Scratch, The Write Life, The Freelancer, The Toast, and numerous other publications. She’s also the author of The Biographies of Ordinary People, a Millennial-era Little Women that follows three sisters from 1989 to 2016.
INSTRUCTOR INSPIRATION STATEMENT
I love writing and teaching — which makes sense, because they’re both about communicating ideas and connecting with other people. My goal as a teacher is to give you the information you need to craft your own story, both as a writer and as a professional. Where will your writing career take you? I can’t say for sure, but I can give you every tool I have to help you on your way.
