We’re spending the day at Write to Publish, the annual conference hosted by our former grad program. If you’re free, stop by the Memorial Student Union (second floor) and say hi!
Write to Publish is unlike any writing conference you’ve previously attended. Instead of focusing on the craft of writing, we explore the process of getting published. Throughout the day we will host twelve workshops highlighting the basics of publishing with relation to our conference theme: Step into Genre. Workshops are 50 minutes long and cost $35 each. Discounts are available for students and for those attending four workshops (a full day pass also gets you free entry into the author stage).
The author stage will host a variety of authors who will speak about their own experiences in publishing. Entrance is $10 (or free with a full day workshop pass). These presentations are intended as an “industry mingle” rather than a series of readings. The authors will focus on the ups and downs, challenges, and triumphs they experienced in their careers. Local vendors from the publishing industry will also be present, sharing their knowledge and services with conference-goers.
