I am delighted and honored to be invited as a guest presenter in Bridget Birdsall's writing workshop titled: New Age of Publishing Secrets Revealed: Has Amazon Won? The September 29th workshop is one of the many fine offerings by the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Continuing Studies.
Bridget is an Associate Faculty member in the UW's Department of Continuing Studies specializing in writing programs. She is also the author of the young adult novels Ordinary Angels, August Atlas, and Bringing Home Divine, as well as being a poet and an artist. She and I were co-panelists earlier this summer at the wonderful Write By the LakeWriter's Workshop and Retreat.
Here is the blurb for the New Age of Publishing workshop:
This two-hour seminar is for all writers and curious readers interested in exploring the dramatically-evolving world of publishing.
Gone are the days when a few giants guarded the literary gates. Today we live in a world of blogs, e-books, print-on-demand presses, indie presses, self-publishing and more.
Join local authors Bridget Birdsall and Peggy Williams to learn why the landscape for writers has changed forever and plan for your future.
The date is Saturday, September 29, 2012.
The time is 1-3 pm.
The fee is just $25.
