Knoxville Writers’ Guild Offers workshop on publishing your first book

May 29, 2011

Any aspiring authors amongst my readership?
 
The Knoxville Writers’ Guild is sponsoring the workshop, “You’ve Written a Book, Now What?” with author and editor Chris Hebert on Saturday, June 4 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at the Redeemer Church, 1642 Highland Ave. Cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members.
“Writing a book is just the first of many challenges,” Hebert says. “Having written it, what do you do next? There are as many different types of outlets for books as there are types of books themselves. It can be hard for a writer—especially a first-time writer—to know where to begin.”
 
For example, should you try to find an agent? Should you aim for a major commercial house or for a small nonprofit press? When is self-publishing the most appropriate route?
 
“In this workshop we’ll discuss these questions and others,” he says. “And we’ll talk about how to think about your own work in the way publishers do.”
 
Hebert earned his M.F.A in creative writing from the University of Michigan. Since 2001 he has been an acquisitions editor at the University of Michigan Press. There, working with scholars, novelists, and nonfiction writers, he has published and edited a wide-ranging list of award-winning books spanning numerous disciplines both for scholarly and general readers. His novel, The Boiling Season, is forthcoming from HarperCollins in 2012.
