Between the Lines with Steve Mitchell
Thursday, January 5 7pm Publishing: The Community and the Business
This workshop will provide an overview of the publishing industry from the perspective of an author, a bookseller, and a publisher. You'll learn which publishing path may be right for you: self-publishing, small press or "Big 5." You'll learn book distribution and discounting models, how to approach a local bookstore, how to tell a good deal from a bad one. It's a crash course in publishing for writers.
