Upcoming workshop at Baxter Arts Centre

Join J.D. (David) Carpenter Thursday, October 12, 2017 to learn more about “Then & Now–Publishing options for today’s writer”.

Until the turn of the century, writers chose either commercial publishing or self-publishing but in 2017 exciting and viable options are available, including co-op publishing, zines, blogging, and social media. This class will provide insight into these alternatives, but will focus on which form of publishing is right for you, how to prepare a manuscript, what to include in your submission, where to submit, whether or not to seek out an agent, and how to distribute and market your own work. 

Register by October 1, 2017
