Publish Your Book in One Week!

Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Instructors: The Canvas Teen Literary Journal Editorial Board

Do you have a novel, novella, collection of poems, essay series, or just any book you’ve been longing to put into print? Or do you just want to learn how to publish for the future moment when you’re ready? Taught by the editors of Canvas Teen Literary Journal, this class is run by teens just like you who understand your questions, worries, and can go at your pace. This class will teach you how to edit, lay out in paperback and ebook, design your cover, and publish your book for yourself, friends, and family, or for the whole world to read. At the end of the week, you will have assembled an anthology of the class’ shared work, or a book of your own work, which you can choose to publish via Amazon or just keep private. You will receive one free print copy of the print book you created. If you choose to publish, you can buy more copies and share the link with friends and family at your discretion.  If you have a laptop, please bring it to class each day (some computers available on site).

NOTE: If you don’t have a book-length manuscript but want to learn how to publish, you can still take this class. But if you DO plan to publish your own book, it must be a completed manuscript (finished novel, completed short story collection, poetry collection, etc.) We will start editing the first day so stories and collections must be complete.
