About This Class

Have you ever thought of publishing your own book? Maybe it’s a manuscript that’s been secretly sitting in a drawer that you’ve never told anyone about. Perhaps it’s a story that’s been rejected one too many times but you know it has merit. It could be a work of non-fiction on a topic you feel passionate about and you’d now like to share it with others. The once frowned upon pursuit of self-publishing is today totally acceptable. In fact, some self-publishers have started their own companies or even made their way to the bestsellers list and got a publishing contract in the process.
