Join writers who’ve published debuts, and one agent who’s helped writers do so, to find out why certain unheard-of writers get pulled from the slush pile and what agents and writers can do to ensure the success of a first book. What necessary milestones did they reach or what mistakes did they make? What’s it like to finish and then publish a debut work in the contemporary literary landscape? Discussion will take on recent trends in publishing, what makes a stand-out debut, and what writers can learn from debuts that have blown up.

*This course will be livestreamed, rather than presented in hybrid format, so those participating virtually will not be visible or audible to those in person. The facilitator will do their best to repeat audience questions, and the moderator will forward questions from virtual participants to the facilitator whenever possible. Unfortunately, no recordings will be made of this event, so registrants will need to view it live, mountain time.
