Careers in Publishing and Literary Arts

In this workshop, participants will consider three major sectors of literary publishing: development, production, and marketing, in a generative workshop where attendants create statements of intent/pitches to prepare them for jobs in publishing and literary arts that suit their particular passions, goals, expertise, and skillset.
