Erin Adair-Hodges A Book, By Hook and/or Crook: Bringing Your Novel into the World Career & Publishing March 11 to March 15, 2024 Number of Participants: 12 Price: $575.00 Format: 1 Week - LIVE Zoom Workshop

LIVE via ZOOM: 7pm-9pm (Eastern Time)

So, you’re writing a novel—congrats! But…what now? If it’s good, it will find a home, and if it doesn’t, that must mean it’s bad, right? Thankfully, no. Writing is an art, but publishing is a business, so how do we prepare our work (and ourselves) for that phase?

Join former fiction acquisitions editor Erin Adair-Hodges in a discussion about the book acquisition and publishing process, all with an eye on getting your book an agent and eventual offer. This course features revision exercises, pitch writing feedback, polishing your hook, clarification on queries, and more. By the end, each writer will have a strategic plan for the post-writing phase of their novel’s journey.


Erin Adair-Hodges is the author of Let’s All Die Happy, winner of the Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize, and Every Form of Ruin, both from the Pitt Poetry Series. Recipient of the Allen Tate Prize and the Loraine Williams Poetry Prize, her work has been featured in American Poetry Review, Gulf Coast, Kenyon Review, PBS NewsHour, Ploughshares, Sewanee Review, and more.
