Tomorrow I will be attending a Publishing Symposium put on by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild. The event is to happen at the Western Development Museum in the afternoon. The SWG describe the event below:
The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild and SaskBooks are partnering to offer writers and publishers a chance to learn about how to sell your book(s) better. Is direct marketing your best option? How do you get your book into a bookstore? How do you get the bookstore to love your book? Does it really matter what it looks like? These are all questions this symposium will answer.
The symposium consists of a half day of presentations and information on Friday September 29, 2017 at the Western Development Museum (Palace Theatre), in Saskatoon. The symposium covers topics such as how to find a publisher, how to format and submit your manuscript, contract and royalties, self-publishing intensive (including workflow, production, hiring an editor, etc.), working with publishers to market your book, and more.
Now, since I have already published a good number of books, I am not sure just what I will learn to make the future better for me as both a writer and as a publisher. Still, there is no question that there is no such thing as knowing too much. I know that I still have a lot to learn, especially as a publisher.
