(You Gotta) Fight for Your Write (to Publish!)
Ooligan Press Invites You to Learn How to Publish Your Story at Our Annual Conference!
Are you ready for Write to Publish? Our sixth annual Write to Publish conference is coming up on February 15th at the PSU Native American Student and Community Center from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This year’s theme, The New Adult Revolution, will feature a variety of authors and publishing professionals, including Kelly Williams Brown, Jamie S. Rich, Allison Moon, and Chris Roberson, talking about publishing and discussing the twenty-something demographic and how their stories can be told authentically. Lunch and snacks will be provided by Anna Bannanas Café, California Pizza Kitchen, and KIND Bars.
Write to Publish is a unique writers’ conference focused on publishing. This year, acclaimed author Kelley Williams Brown (Adulting: How to Become A Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps) is facilitating a workshop that will cover the basics of getting published—including how to navigate the industry as an author, how to pitch a manuscript, and how to speak with agents, editors, and publicists. This year’s keynote speech will be made by Allison Moon on taking charge of your story and self-publishing your book. Eight different panels will feature writers and professionals speaking about their personal experiences and giving advice; these panels will explore a variety of topics, such as the writer-editor relationship, transmedia marketing, and breaking into the comics publishing scene. In addition, local vendors from the publishing industry will contribute their knowledge and services to attendees. We’ll feature representatives from MindBuck Media, Gertrude Press, Cogitate Studios, MacGregor Literary Agency, the Portland Review, and more! As in years past, Write to Publish promises to help demystify the publishing process by offering insight, resources, and encouragement for burgeoning writers.
