Self publishing need not be a solitary pursuit. Join a team of librarians and local published authors for an information-packed workshop that will introduce you to the basics of self publishing online and prepare you for the road ahead. Learn about free tools that you can use to turn your work into an eBook. Hear about the issues and challenges that face authors who publish on their own. Get practical advice about marketing and building an audience for your work. Learn about library resources that can help at every stage of the process, from writing to cover design. Hear local authors speak about their own publishing experiences and ask them your questions. Light refreshments will be served.
