The Name of the Game: Finding a Publisher for your Book

PD session | Feb 2, 7 pm >>

Prolific author and publisher Lesley Choyce will unravel the mysteries around finding a publisher for your book manuscript. Because publishing is an ever-changing business — and it is just that, a business — creativity is not enough. For first time authors and for those with a publishing record, Lesley will illuminate the dark corners, give you a map through this maze, and discuss the process from both sides — that of a writer and that of a publisher.


Lesley Choyce is the author of 100 books of literary fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction and young adult novels. He runs Pottersfield Press and has worked as editor with a wide range of Canadian authors. Choyce has been teaching English and Creative Writing at Dalhousie and other universities for over thirty years. He has won The Dartmouth Book Award, The Atlantic Poetry Prize and The Ann Connor Brimer Award and has been short-listed for the Governor-General’s Award. He surfs year round in the North Atlantic.
