Authors and Agents: The Process of Publishing Your Book

Please join us on Thursday, September 24th, 6:00 p.m., at the Algonquin Club for this event cosponsored by YaleBoston, YaleWomen Boston, the Boston Yale Entrepreneur's Breakfast, and the Yale School of Management alumni.

  • Do you want to become a thought leader?
  • Would you like to learn more about the publishing process?
  • Learn how publishing can help you create your own brand!

Two Yale authors and one of Boston’s leading literary agents will discuss the process of having your book published. They will talk about whether and how to use an agent, traditional versus self-publishing, and differences between fiction and non-fiction book publishing.

Our authors both belonged to the YaleWomen Boston writing group. Join us to celebrate their successes and learn from their experiences.
