Sat, April 6th, 2019

Boston Writing Workshop

When:
April 6, 2019
Where:
Concord, MA
What:
Control Your Writing Career and Set Yourself Free

Whether you’re in the middle of penning your first manuscript, you have a short story, novella, or novel you couldn't sell through traditional channels, or your backlist rights have reverted, learning to successfully indie publish (publish outside traditional channels) and market your work can set you free. The morning session will focus on the nuts and bolts of indie publishing: process, format, sales channels, and timeline. The afternoon workshop covers marketing. The sessions can be attended independent of one another. If you have one, bring a laptop and a short description of the short story, novella, or book (back-cover copy length) you’d like to focus on.
