Finding (and Landing!) Author Clients (June 6 – July 3, 2022)



This four-week, instructor-led online class is intended to help newer editors interested in building their client base of author clients. These may be indie authors who are interested in self-publishing, or authors who are looking for help as they navigate the traditional publishing landscape.

We’ll work on:

  • where to find author clients
  • showcasing your special skills and talents
  • steps in the client-acquisition process
  • how to establish trust with potential clients
  • vetting potential clients
  • identifying red flags
  • effective client management/setting expectations
  • dealing with problem clients
  • evaluating client interactions
  • assessing why you didn’t land a client
  • understanding the client’s experience
  • and more!

Throughout the class, you’ll do homework assignments (with personal feedback) that will help you understand the best ways for you to establish (or strengthen) your author clientele.
