Two ways to attack this. Whether or not you like big cities, move to NYC. The top 5 publishing companies have their headquarters in the Big Apple. Being in the right place at the right time is half the battle. As for classes, use those electives on English classes, grammar classes (if you can find one) . Lit classes will be helpful in learning the intricacies of fiction writing, allowing you to experience multiple genres of writing.
