Between the Lines - Full Series

Sep 26, 2024 at 7:00 PM EDT - Oct 17, 2024 at 8:30 PM EDT


Event Details

The Between the Lines series gives you access to four published authors who will walk you through different aspects of writing, editing, submission, and publishing. Whether you're writing fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, these workshops will present the detailed information you'll need to be a more successful published writer.

Each workshop is online and limited to 15 participants.

Thursday, September 26 7pm Publishing: The Community and the Business

Steve Mitchell

This workshop will provide an overview of the publishing industry from the perspective of an author, a bookseller, and a publisher. You'll learn which publishing path may be right for you: self-publishing, small press or "Big 5." You'll learn book distribution and discounting models, how to approach a local bookstore, how to tell a good deal from a bad one. It's a crash course in publishing for writers.

Wednesday, October 2 7pm Submitting to Journals, Agents, and Publishers

Julia Ridley Smith

This workshop will help you prepare your work for submission, guide you in choosing where to submit, and provide pointers on the submission project, regardless of the type of writing you are doing. It will take you on the others side of the submission wall and help you understand how editors and agents work, what they are looking for, and how to work with them as your project moves forward.

Tuesday, January 17 7pm Self-Publishing for Black Folks (and others too)

Ashley Lumpkin

From cost-prohibitive contests to agents and major publishing houses, the publishing industry can sometimes feel like an impenetrable force, especially for Black folks whose voices and stories are often “othered” or ignored. Self-publishing is one way to circumvent the gatekeepers and get these stories into the world. In this workshop we will discuss: the necessary steps between finishing a manuscript and sending it to the printer, best practices for formatting and printing the book, and common pitfalls to avoid. Participants will leave fully prepared to take the next steps toward getting their stories into the hands of their target audience.

Thursday, October 17 7pm Editing, Alone and with Others

Deonna Kelli Sayed

Every writer needs an editor. The revision and editing process is probably the most important part of preparing literary work for publication. Many writers don't understand the importance —or the process — of revision and editing. In this workshop, Deonna Kelli Sayed will explore what editing entails, the importance of revision, different types of editing, how to work with an editor, and how to find the right kind of editor (as well as questions to consider as you self-edit).
