Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023, ONLINE. Choosing which publishing format to pursue—traditional publisher, independent press, self-publishing company, or hybrid publisher—is among the most important decisions aspiring authors must make. What are the pros and cons of each model? How can writers determine which is the best fit for their book? What should they consider before submitting a manuscript without representation, or accepting a publisher’s offer? Authors Addie Tsai, Farah Ali, Megan Frazer Blakemore, Josephine Cameron, and Robin Clifford Wood will discuss these topics and more, based on their own experiences with each format, followed by a Q&A session. Cost: FREE for MWPA members, $10 Nonmembers. Register at Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance.
