Online Class | Market While You Write: Building an Audience

Intermediate / Advanced | Like it or not, marketing is part of a modern author’s job description, and it starts long before the book comes out. This is a class for the writers who are baffled when an agent or publisher asks them to describe their “platform,” and for writers who are considering self-publishing but don’t know how to find early adopters. With lots of time for discussion and guided assignments between classes to help students create personalized marketing plans, this four-part class explores a variety of practical, inexpensive, and realistic ways for “pre-published” authors to gather a community of readers and influencers. This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
