Many literary agents love to represent novelists and other creative writers, but your product and approach will be different than for nonfiction. Join us as Carole Sargent, Director of Georgetown University’s Office of Scholarly Publications, continues Part 2 of the Book Publishing Series. What do agents look for in a potential author? How is fiction different than nonfiction when it comes to contracts and sales? How can you build a platform as a creative writer? Is it really that difficult to get published these days? This webinar series has grown remarkably over the years for a reason, so find out what all the fuss is about!

Dr. Carole Sargent is the Director of Scholarly Publications at Georgetown University; she was formerly a faculty member in the English Department. She earned her Ph.D. at the University of Virginia, and she is the author of two books with Farrar, Straus & Giroux that received national publicity, including The New York Times, Newsweek, NPR, CNN and “60 Minutes.” Her mission is guiding Georgetown's tenure-line faculty to scholarly book and article publication, but she also works with other authors who have exceptional credentials. If you would like to pay Georgetown to work with her on your book, please write to for information.
