Session topics include:
9 a.m.-9:50 a.m. Where Do I Start My Publishing Journey?
Presenter: Leanna Brunner. The ever-changing world of publishing and writing has become a whirlwind of change during the past several years especially. It is a difficult world to traverse, especially for beginning writers who have no idea where to begin. This introductory session will provide an overall step-by-step approach in beginning your publishing journey and provide a concrete game plan for you to not just start but finish this daunting but rewarding bucket-list project.
10 a.m-10.50 am. Red Alerts for Writers
Presenter: J. Alexander (Alex) Greenwood. Indeed, it's a great time to be a writer, as there are more options than ever for independent writers to bring their work to market. However, there are also potential pitfalls due to unscrupulous business practices. In this session, author and writer services consultant Alex Greenwood shares his "red alerts"—vital information to prevent you from being scammed by nefarious companies that prey on writers' dreams.
11 a.m.-11:50 a.m. Self-Editing
Presenter: Tiffany White. Learn how to effectively edit your manuscript by taking the biggest concepts from developmental, line, and copy editing to creating action steps to revise and polish your story.
Noon-12:50 p.m. Book Formatting
Presenter: Les Lynam. After you’ve tightened up all the typos, plot holes, misused words, etc., you’re ready to publish. BUT FIRST… you need to format your work so it will look good to the reader. In this session, we will talk about the basics of formatting the interior of your book. Much of the work can be done in a word processor (we will specifically be looking at Microsoft Word) and a specialized authoring software (we will focus on the product Scrivener). Formatting for ebooks and paperbacks are two separate processes, though those processes are merging as the publishing platforms develop new tools to assist you.
