Fall Writers Workshop - Publishing

How to Publish Your Work: A Workshop on Traditional Publishing, Self-Publishing, and Everything in Between

Before answering "how," it's important to ask why: why do we publish?  Kelsey Swindler of Orange Frazer Press will discuss the role of the book publishing industry, the "why" behind the printed page, and the many routes available to today's writers.  This will be an open and collaborative workshop, with time devoted to overviews of traditional and alternative publishing routes, questions, and conversation.  Whether you are still crafting your memoir in your mind, scribbling poems on dinner napkins, or have a two-hundred-page manuscript waiting on your bedside table, you will leave with the knowledge and resources to approach any publishing scenario with confidence.

Kelsey Swindler is the marketing and business development lead at Orange Frazer Press in Wilmington, Ohio.  She received her B.A. in English Lit from Wittenberg University and a certificate in publishing from the Publishing Institute at the University of Denver.  She loves her hardcovers and e-books equally and keeps a watchful eye on the publishing industry.  Kelsey blogs about book publishing at orangefrazercustombooks.com/blog and tweets about the book industry (and her favorite veggie recipes) at @kelseyswindler.
