Secrets of Successful Independent Publishing
with Jane Karker
Independent writers now have a whole new way of producing and marketing their books. Recent innovations in the rapidly changing technology in printing have created a boom in self-publishing.

This workshop will outline some of the options both traditional and nontraditional, including what is offered locally. Students will find out how to get the technical assistance they need, and about the many types of organizations, printers, and publishers that work with Maine authors. Jane Karker is owner and president of Maine Authors Publishing and Cooperative and Custom Museum Publishing Inc., with over fifteen years of experience in the printing industry.

Includes question and answer time each session.
