Publishing Lecture Series

Publishing Lecture Series

Tethered by Letters offers interested writing programs, high schools, and colleges the opportunity to have our founder and Editor-in-Chief, D.M. Hedlund, guest lecture to their campus, classroom, or group members. These lectures focus on the professional side of writing, specifically how emerging writers navigate the ever-changing literary industry. From creating a publishing platform to pursuing representation, these lectures walk students through the process of starting a writing and editing career.

About D.M. Hedlund:

D.M. Hedlund published her first novel, Threads of Deception, at the age of eighteen, learning firsthand how difficult it is to navigate the literary industry without connections or direction. Vowing to help other new writers overcome these obstacles, Hedlund created the nonprofit literary organization, Tethered by Letters (TBL), in 2009. Since its inception, TBL has helped over 500 authors achieve their dreams of publication.

As a professional writer, editor, and publisher, Hedlund lectures on how all these elements interact in the literary industry. From Oxford University to the University of Singapore, Hedlund has lectured around the world, specializing in how young people can navigate the tumultuous literary waters.

In 2015, we brought the Publishing Lecture Series home! Back in the state where our organization was founded, we are excited to continue offering this program to high schools and colleges in the Mile High.

The 2017 series will take place over the spring and fall semesters. If you’d like to schedule Hedlund to come and talk to your students, contact us. Spaces are filling up quickly. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity.
