This course helped to demystify the landscape of literary journals and submission process. The instructor's feedback was immensely helpful; I feel much more confident submitting my work. The online forum is learner-centered, interactive, clear, and useful. There are opportunities to connect with others online; I've made a partnership with another writer in the course to exchange reading and feedback on an ongoing basis with one other. Thank you for this wonderful and pragmatic course!

Manuscript Publishing for Novelists provided an excellent overview of what is involved in this process. The organization of the course followed each step of the process from proper formatting of the manuscript, to preparing a query letter, to vetting a publisher and agent, and to reviewing a checklist before submitting the manuscript. Along the way, during each segment of the course, there were helpful recommendations of what to do and not to do. Emily is not only an expert in this field, but also a genuine person. Every aspect of the course was conducted in a professional manner, and I would recommend Manuscript Publishing for Novelists to anyone interested in publishing their first novel.

The one thing I noticed is that there is little information about how to go about getting published. This course gives you insight on how to improve your writing, gives the opportunity to make friends willing to start writing groups, and gives the "secrets" to going about getting your work published. I learned and gained a lot more in this course than I had expected. The critiques received from the instructor and from classmates is invaluable. I feel more confident in editing my work, providing feedback to others, and knowing how to approach journals and where to find them. It is a confidence I didn't have before the course. Thank you!

As I neared the end of the four-week seminar with Emily Harstone on how to submit a manuscript to a publisher or an agent, I realized that I had learned more in just four weeks of daily lessons than I had in almost ten years of trial and error in getting my manuscripts published. What makes the coursed offered by Emily and Authors Publish so unique is the extensive and personal feedback which she gives each student in the class. Through Emily's professional critique, I was able to turn a ho-hum manuscript into an eye-catching, attention-getting excerpt. Armed with that and a tightly crafted query letter and synopsis, I am confident now that I will be able to find the right publisher for my manuscript.

This four week course is very well laid out. Each week offers assignments that actually taught me how to properly submit my work. I was given individualized feedback on my current work and a sample query letter. Emily even suggested specific publishers and agents that would be best suited to my work based on her extensively knowledge of the publishing industry. I feel much more confident now in searching out opportunities to share my writing. This course was incredibly valuable.
