Get the Word Out: Development Program for Debut Authors


Get the Word Out is a publicity incubator for debut authors. This unique professional development program will provide expert advice and peer support to authors who might not otherwise have access to these resources.

We will select a cohort of debut fiction writers in fall 2022 and a cohort of debut poets in early 2023. In each cycle, authors planning for the publication of their debut book will develop and execute a strategic publicity plan under the mentorship of an accomplished book publicist.

The program’s goal is to help debut writers maximize the exposure of their first book, reach readers, and create a platform to propel their literary careers.

Get the Word Out participants will:

  1. Participate in a six-session online publicity workshop led by an experienced book publicist
  2. Attend six online seminars with leading professionals in publicity, marketing, sales, and related professions
  3. Devote considerable time outside of scheduled sessions to promoting their book
  4. Contribute to a peer learning community by sharing what works and what doesn’t, helping each member of the cohort to amplify their impact
  5. There is no application fee and no cost to those who are invited to participate.
