Inside a Publisher’s Mind: How the Book Publishing Process Really Works

  • Cleveland Public Library 525 West Superior Avenue Cleveland, OH, 44114 United States (map)

At a Big 5 publisher, over sixty people help bring a book into the world. For academic, small press, and self-publishers, the hands may be fewer but the volume of work remains the same. Book publishing expert Brandi Larsen demystifies the publishing process and shares how a book is made and what you can do to get in the pipeline—from manuscript to bestseller to perennial backlist and beyond.

Brandi will present this talk as part of the Cleveland Inkubator, Northeast Ohio's largest free annual festival for writers and readers, presented by Literary Cleveland. Cleveland Inkubator is made by possible by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, as well as through support from Cleveland Public Library. .
