Pathways to Publication, with Susanne Dunlap

You’ve finished your manuscript (or almost, anyway). Congratulations! Now it’s time to think about how you’ll get it into readers’ hands. This workshop will cover the myriad avenues now available to writers who want to publish their work!  Spend a morning with a prolific author who has experience in almost every publishing avenue–from traditional publishing to hybrid publishing to self-publishing.  We’ll discuss the benefits, pitfalls and practical steps for each of these options.  During the morning, you will start to chart your path forward, and by the end of the workshop, you’ll have a plethora of tools and resources to help you take the next steps toward getting your book into print!

Saturday, March 4th, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
