HAVE YOU EVER DREAMED OF WRITING A BOOK?

Write and Publish Your Book Through the Shires Press Series: Student Book Publishing at SVC

Current students are encouraged to apply now

The Series is available to all full-time SVC students through The Hunter Division of Humanities.  The Series requires 4 classes, 2 of which can also count for certain Majors in Humanities or the General Core. 

These courses offer students the opportunity to study the foundations of book publishing while working on their own manuscript from conception to completion. At the end of the Series, you’ll have five printed copies of your own published work, with opportunities to promote it in the retail and online marketplace.  

Upon successful completion of the Series, the Northshire Bookstore will print five copies** of each student’s book and will provide them with:

  • Assignment of ISBN and barcode (the commercial book ID number for each edition and variation of a book).
  • Retail shelf exposure for their book, in both the Manchester Center, VT, and Saratoga Springs bookstore locations.***
  • Online listing of the book on www.northshire.com.
  • Royalty fees paid for any sales of book, paid twice yearly.
