Publishing Your Work: How, When, Why

This Meetup is past

58 people went


Let's gather for food, (non-alcoholic) drinks, and a panel discussion about the publishing world.

Our guests include Jon Clinch (author of Kings of the Earth, Finn, and The Thief of Auschwitz), Jan Elizabeth Watson (author of Asta in the Wings and the forthcoming What Has Become Of You), professional editor Jessica Swift Eldridge, and Green Writers Press publisher and literary agent Dede Cummings.

This diverse group will share their stories about getting published. Two authors will share their experiences being on the best-seller list, rising up through MFA programs, and going independent. Our professional editor and agent will discuss strategies for getting your work noticed. And finally, the all important question: Why, at a time when people read so few books, should we go through the work of publishing at all?

The panel begins at 5:30. Drinks served during the panel, food immediately following the discussion.

Special thanks to Hotel Vermont for providing accommodations to our guests.

Suggested donation: $10 (to help pay for food and compensate the guests for their travel expenses)
