Led by Cassie Mannes Murray, a literary agent at Triangle House and director at Pine State Publicity. Her work has been published in The Rumpus, Story Quarterly, Passages North, Hobart, Joyland, and Slice Magazine, among others. 

In this publicity and promotion seminar, Cassie will first walk participants through the life cycle of a book (at both traditional and independent presses) from querying to publication with a focus on where writers can use marketing techniques during the game of seeking publication.

Once students understand the larger publishing landscape, Cassie will focus on all things book publicity:
  • When writers should start publicizing
  • What a publicity timeline should look like
  • Potential costs associated with publicity (awards, industry reviews, early reviewers)
  • Finding and reaching your audience
  • What information to provide your literary agent and publicity team
  • Asking for blurbs
  • Social media tips from branding to posting to design

And of course, Cassie will help writers build a concrete guide on how to publicize their own work, or how they can help in the process of working with a publicity team, literary agent, or publicist.

Writers will walk away from this course with detailed marketing tools, concrete timelines, resources for publicity strategy, and a view inside the current publishing landscape.
