MediaBistro has a great website, I can’t say that enough, I love roaming through it daily for updates, resources, etc. If you have not noticed self publishing has become popular these last few years even though traditional publishers have said it is just a fad. Do you know the basics of self publishing? Let me help you out if you are lost or intiminated by the whole thing.
Starting on April 3rd through May 8th MediaBistro is offering a workshop for writers interested in self publishing. It’s called the Self Publishing Finishing School. Students will be equiped with valuable advice from actual self published authors. By the end of the workshop you will be ready to introduce your work to the world.
This is only for students that have a completed maniscript ready for print!
Register by March 6th and you only pay $395, after that date the price goes up to $470. Here is a list of the speakers and schedule. Visit the site to register for this and other events.
