Tuesday Tips: Advice on Becoming a Published Novelist

UPennEarlier today, I posted about Allison Winn Scotch’s (C’95) novel The Department of Lost and Found.

While the book’s story was intriguing, an even more intriguing story is how Allison actually became a published novelist. Like many creative careers, it's a story of perseverance.

I've been speaking with Allison over the past few weeks and she has shared valuable, specific tips with us on the following topics:
  • How to get published
  • How to land an agent
  • What classes to take
  • What books an aspiring author should read
  • Writing programs to use
  • Events for networking
  • Groups to Join
Read Allison's very valuable insider's advice!

In coming weeks, watch this space for advice from 6 additional published Penn novelists!
