PUBLISHING WORKSHOP Join Ibrahim Ahmad, senior editor at Akashic Books, to learn about the life cycle of a manuscript, beginning the moment it leaves your inbox and ending on bookstore shelves.

The publishing process can seem obscure, opaque, and frustrating. But there are ways you can help yourself stand out instead of striking out. By understanding the different parts of the publishing ecosystem, writers can gain an edge in how the present their work and themselves.

Ibrahim will also discuss the current state of publishing, the trends and patterns, and the latest developments that can help writers become savvier entrepreneurs and, ultimately, more successful authors.
