Description

Your novel, finally, is ready for the world. You spent tireless nights and weekends on it, likely years; it has been through rewrites and countless rounds of edits. What’s next?

Do you send it to agents or do you represent yourself? What can an agent do for your novel that you can’t? And where, ultimately, do you want to see it published? Do you pursue one of the “Big Five Four” or entrust your labor of love with an indie press? What are acquisitions editors looking for? Completing your novel is a significant milestone, now it’s time to put in the work to keep the momentum going.

In this class, we’ll navigate the pros and cons of all your options so that you can determine the most beneficial path in guiding your novel from manuscript to published book.

About Gabriel Levinson

Gabriel Levinson straddles the extremes of publishing: by day, he’s a senior production editor for Penguin Random House; by night, he’s the publisher of critically acclaimed indie ANTIBOOKCLUB, touted by Vulture as “the book world’s smallest press.” Gabriel is the founder of Chicago’s Book Bike, a custom-built tricycle filled with books that he gave away in Chicago parks from 2007 to 2012, itself the inspiration for Book Bikes around the world that independently function to this day. Prior to Book Bike, he was the associate editor of MAKE Literary Magazine, where he established and edited the book reviews section. Gabriel is a professor in New York University’s Center for Publishing, and he holds a BA in fiction writing from Columbia College Chicago.
