In this class, Stacey Graham and Dawn Frederick of Red Sofa Literary will discuss the best practices to a proactive and positive agent/author team.  From taking the book out, to navigating the waters of the publishing process from book offer, to contract, to publication. This class will help break any urban myths of how one works with agent, while also reflecting on the  many ways this can be a long-term professional relationship for any author in their writing career.
