Description

This workshop is part of the Autumn Writing Getaway.

Navigating the World of ePublishing

Becoming your own editor, publisher, layout team, copyrighter and promoter can be a monumental task. This supportive workshop will teach you how to avoid the typical pitfalls of self-publishing and create a product you will be proud to promote.

You will learn:

  • Advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing
  • Whether to choose physical and/or electronic (Kindle) books
  • Crucial proofing and editing routines
  • Business basics: ISBNs, copyrights, choosing distributors (i.e., exclusive to Amazon vs. Amazon/iBooks/B&N)
  • The steps to publish your work through hands-on practice
  • Marketing: Why blurbs are necessary, How to promote your work via social media, contests and giveaways

You should bring:

  • A laptop that can connect to the venue’s wi-fi
  • A printed excerpt of your writing (up to 3 pages) for an in-class exercise
  • An electronic copy (.doc, .docx or .pdf) of your book in progress
  • Login information for your email address and if you already have social media or Create Space accounts, bring those login details too
  • Optional: electronic copies of any other materials you may have already developed (i.e., a cover design, blurbs and author bio)

Whether you are working on a novel, memoir or book of poems, you will go home inspired and with the knowledge to move forward with confidence.

Additional workshop options at the Autumn Writing Getaway:

Poetry Workshop
Led by Peter E. Murphy
Are your poems too static? This workshop will show you how to jimmy your words, enliven your sentences and stretch your ideas so your poems leap, rather than just lie sleepily on the page.


Getting Started with Memoir
Led by Anndee Hochman
Perhaps you're spilling with life stories, but you aren't sure how to begin writing them down. We will start with a "snapshot" of memory and learn to make it rich with sensory details, well-chosen words and a clear point of view.
