In 2009, Publishers Weekly called pet books, “…so popular that they appear bulletproof even in a down market.” Two out of three American homes have pets, and in 2012 owners spend $53 billion on their pet family members. Publishers of nonfiction books and magazines are actively looking for pet books and articles that will become their Marley & Me or Dewey the Library Cat.
In this class, you will learn how to break into the pet book and article market as a self-published or traditionally published author with a variety of angles and options-memoirs, articles, blogs, anthologies, self-help, inspirational, photo-journals, novels, and funny takes on human-pet relationships. You will find out how to build credibility with animal lovers, deal with hot-button issues, and access a platform of potential readers.
This class will include exercises to help you develop the craft of writing compelling true stories about human-animal-connection for publication or for pleasure plus a handout listing magazines and publishers that currently publish pet books and articles. Small copy fee payable to the teaching artists.
