Episode 12: Paths to getting published — Part 1


In this episode, I kick off another series: How to Get Published.

You might like this episode if:

  • You have written something–a novel, a short story, an essay–but you don’t know what to do next.
  • You would like to embark on a big, research-y project that would turn into a book, but you don’t know what to do next.
  • You have always wanted to be a published writer, but you don’t know how to get your work published.
  • You have questions like “Where do agents come from?”


Listen in here for a general overview of how fiction and nonfiction writers “typically” get published–based on my experience, that of my friends, and my observations of bloggers and the like online.

This episode is a map that you can look at and figure out what track you are on, or which track you might want to get on. In the next episodes, I’ll dive into specifics like writing query letters, pitching nonfiction, and submitting short stories.


Please post questions in the comments!! As I say in the episode, I feel like it is a mystery how to get published and I would like it to not be.
