The approach can be different for nonfiction and fiction projects. Join us as Carole Sargent, Director of Georgetown University’s Office of Scholarly Publications continues Part 2 of the Book Publishing Series. Carole will discuss what it takes to move your idea from concept to signed contract, what literary agents look for in a fiction proposal or a potential author and why should you get an agent before you write your next piece. A Q&A component will be included.

Dr. Carole Sargent is the Director of Scholarly Publications at Georgetown University, a position she accepted in 2006 after having taught 18th-century English literature in Georgetown’s English Department since 1997. 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 many other authors. If you would like to pay Georgetown to work with her on your book, please write to for information.
