A Publishing Primer for Aspiring Authors

Saturday, February 1, 2020

Today’s publishing environment offers unprecedented opportunity for new writers to make their mark, but where do you start? New technologies make it easier than ever to get a book published. But here’s what no one talks about: As we crank out more new titles each year, the pool of retail buyers is unchanged. The market is more competitive than ever, and too many new authors rush in without educating themselves. At this event you will learn from experienced professionals who have been where you want to go and can help you get there. Bring your questions, thick skin, and hard-learned lessons. We will discuss the publishing market, self-publishing, copyrighting, networking, writers conferences, publishing contracts, the role of literary agents and more. For more information visit
