Creative industries and artistic careers are permeated by quality uncertainty. My dissertation is about the quality uncertainty pertaining to aspiring writers' attempts to become first-time published writers. I investigate how both publishers and aspiring writers deal with the initial uncertainty about whether the writers' creative work is of the 'right' or 'wrong' quality to be selected by a publishing house in the publishing market.
