ONLINE WORKSHOP: The Publishing Landscape: An Overview



Hella Ibrahim




The publishing process is an opaque mystery from the outside, but writers are expected to navigate it with professionalism and ease. This landscape seeks to demystify the industry and provide you with the information to make the right choices for your work and your career. Topics covered include different types of publishers, from large to small, how to get your book in the door, the editing process: how books go from MS to RTP, how books are costed out: or, how your fees and royalties are worked out, and finally distribution channels, marketing and publicity.
