Getting Published - An Insider's View Course Offered
at Rockland Community College


Suffern, NY - Writers will learn how to prepare a salable manuscript at a four-session evening course at SUNY Rockland Community College.


Offered through RCC’s Center for Personal & Professional Development (CPPD), the course, Getting Published - An Insider’s View, educates writers about publishers’ changing expectations today, focusing on marketing, editorial and actual book production. Manuscript preparation, editing and revision (all the author’s responsibilities) can affect both the product flow and an author’s royalties. Getting published requires more than writing an attention grabbing query letter. Successful writers demonstrate knowledge of the mechanics of publishing and instill confidence they can deliver a saleable product on time in the format specified.

TIME: 6:30 – 9 p.m.

FEE: $160



LOCATION: MC, AC I, Room 1210
