Remote! (Live Zoom Meetings)

Level: For Everyone
Adult (18+)
98 seats max

After the hard work of writing and editing (and editing) the writer faces another question: how to put the work out into the world on his or her or their own terms. In this session, we'll talk about how to make sure you create the publishing experience you want, by conducting a self-inventory of your publishing needs. Topics will include: expanding your options, defending your rights, dealing with rejection, and choosing your battles. 

Helpfully, the instructor has published with huge presses and tiny presses and everything in between. He also makes DIY books. And he has screwed up many times in his career, so you can reap the benefit of his idiocy. Strap in. This is gonna be fun.
