Have you ever heard a phrase, read an article, caught the end of a conversation, and thought What an interesting anthology that could make? In this course, we will explore the development of an anthology from the first creative thought to publication. Emphasis will be on several key aspects: exploring topics, developing the concept, inviting authors (including bestselling authors), writing the proposal, finding an agent, understanding your role.
No matter how compelling or exciting the topic may be, it is the anthology proposal that determines if the project sinks or swims. Students will be given a template based on the instructor's proposal for The Other Woman.
