Publishing 101 Workshop: From Submissions to Sales



About this Book:

Islandport Press Publisher Dean Lunt and Editorial Director Melissa Kim will give you a tour of the Islandport Press office and warehouse followed by a tag-team lecture that will bring you up to date on the current state of both adult and children's publishing and the changing ways that books are created, marketed, and sold. They will discuss: author market research, the differences between traditional and self publishing, the pros and cons of working with a small press, the submission and review process, sales and distribution, common misconceptions about book publishing, and much more. A Q&A period will follow the presentation. Light refreshments will be served. Special door prize: one attendee will be chosen, at random, to receive a manuscript/portfolio critique (must be present to win).

No manuscripts will be accepted at this event.
