The Art of Getting Published Without an Agent

All Levels | If you ask ten successful writers how they got their first great work published, you will get ten completely different answers. We’ll explore the art of crafting the perfect query letter. We will discuss how to maneuver through the literary world, both online and locally, and how to survive and thrive without having an MFA or an agent. You will learn new approaches, angles, and methods to getting your work published.

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.
