Publishing for the People: Books as Lovework

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Printed words connect us like stories in a patchwork quilt or the roots of the forest. Do you want to create a chapbook, zine, anthology of stories, book, or novel for the first time? Come gather concrete tips – from conception to marketing and self publishing, to book deals and beyond – with published authors ready to cheer you on and share tips for how to take care of yourself on the journey. All experience levels and backgrounds are welcome – you can do it!
