Want to self-publish your book? It’s easy to do but hard to do well. The instructor of this class has helped several authors through the entire process, and over the course of these eleven weeks she’ll guide you through each step, from establishing your budget to finalizing your manuscript, comparing print and e-book distribution options, designing a cover, properly formatting your text, creating a marketing and publicity plan, and more. You’ll learn the best practices for every budget, from hiring experts to DIYing it and still achieving professional results. By the end of the course (and just in time for the holidays), you’ll have a published book or all the components needed to click “publish” on the date of your choosing.

Writers are encouraged to bring a laptop or other Wi-Fi–capable device to class.

Caitlin Alexander has been editing books for more than fifteen years. She spent much of that time at Random House, where she acquired and edited New York Times bestsellers in fiction and nonfiction. She continues to edit bestselling and award-winning books as a freelance editor and can be found at
