Jane's newest book is The Business of Being a Writer (University of Chicago Press); Publishers Weekly said that it is "destined to become a staple reference book for writers and those interested in publishing careers." Also, in collaboration with The Authors Guild, she wrote The Authors Guild Guide to E-Publishing.

By the end of the class, you’ll know what it takes to capture the attention of a New York editor or agent, and what freeand paid resources are available to help you.
