Oct 16, 23, 30: National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity
Multiweek Workshop, 3:00-4:30 PM EST
Course Description: Would you like to reach beyond the academy by publishing a popular book for the broad public? Do you dream of building a successful writing career? Are you interested in partnering with a publishing expert who can advocate for you, negotiate your book contracts and obtain a significant advance on your behalf? "The Academic's Guide to Working with a Literary Agent" is a three part webinar series designed to equip academics with a framework and game plan for obtaining literary representation. Drawing upon her own experience signing with the same literary agency that brokered Barack Obama's first book deal, Dr. Crystal Marie Fleming will demystify how and why academics decide to partner with book agents. By the end of the workshop, participants will have clearly defined goals and a timeline for trade publications, a database of similar books, a list of appropriate agencies and insight into the nuts and bolts of collaborating with a literary agent.
