Getting published

This month I have started upon the process of trying to find a publisher for a collection of essays. Some of those essays, previously published by various literary journals, are on this blog.

I’ve prepared a book proposal with all the relevant information and have sent it out to a few publishers and to several agents. Apparently if one wants to be picked up by one of the larger publishers, an agent is required. I’m given to understand that this is less true in Canada than in the United States.

So, we’ll see. I’ll document here on this blog any interesting twists and turns on this journey. Thanks for your interest.
