How to Get Published: Tips and Tricks for the Visual Artist

The journey to getting published requires an effective strategy, and a little knowledge about the field could increase your chances of success. Chris will cover important things to do when submitting your work to an agent that most people don’t do. He’ll cover agents, publishers, and how to sell a book that you haven’t completed- and why publishers may prefer that you don’t.

Chris will also discuss

  • Why is it important to browse a bookstore before you complete your book and what you should be looking for?
  • How to watch for trends.
  • When it comes for finding an agent, how long do you wait for a response? What’s a good sign and how do you read the tea leaves?
  • Collaborating is best when you handle potential problems in advance.

Bring your publishing questions, and join Chris for an in-depth conversation about getting published!
