Publishing Track - Creative Nonfiction Writing (MFA)

By choosing this two-course track you will learn the process of getting published. The first course, “Introduction to Publishing,” will demystify the journey through examination of the steps necessary to generate agent/editor interest; the structure of the publishing industry (including the burgeoning virtual publishing world); the roles played by agent, editor, publicist, sales representatives, and other key figures; and the all-important work an author can do after publication to give his or her book the best chances for commercial success. The second course, “Immersion in Publishing,” will provide first-hand experience in the publishing world, via a semester-long internship at a publishing house, an independent bookstore, in an editor’s office, or at a literary agency.
