Workshop: How to Self-Publish
6:30 – 8PM
Have you ever wanted to create a catalog or picture book using your art? Or, wanted to establish yourself as an expert? Or, just tell your story? Whatever the reason, having a book you can point to as your own work can generate income and customers. This step-by-step workshop will show you how to put out a book at minimal cost and get it in the marketplace. Gone are the days when you need to print thousands of units, warehouse, and distribute them. We will talk about print-on-demand, distribution, marketing, and pitching to publishers.
This is an interactive workshop that includes a 45 min presentation and Q&A.
