The publishing world is much easier to navigate but it continues to remain a very opaque industry. The workshop is geared towards demystifying the writing and publishing industry in India for all budding writers. This discussion will be focused on understanding multiple roles in the publishing industry to provide clarity on who a potential writer should approach with a manuscript. A section of the class will be dedicated to breaking down the framework of a successful book proposal. The aim of this workshop is to provide a path to publishing for budding writers.
