This class will be taught through Zoom. Class time is Pacific Daylight Time.

Writing and publishing are two very different experiences, and every book has its own journey from first drafts to bookshop shelves. Jen will share what she’s learned in her experiences writing and publishing three YA novels in three unique ways all with the same publisher. The class will start with book-writing basics then dive into publishing. From outlining a novel and making time to write to query letters, agent-seeking, and how titles and covers are created, there are so many pitfalls and moments of joy to be found in traditional publishing. Also, there will be snacks!
