Professional Research for Creative Writers

This course examines two types of literary fieldwork that all writers who hope to publish must become proficient in. One, navigating the business landscape of the publishing world: agents, editors, publishing houses, submissions, booksellers, author platforms, copyright issues, contract basics, and more). Two, developing skills in content-oriented research to expand the boundaries of a narrative by refining character development, broadening the landscape of setting, and anchoring historical situations in the realities of the period.
