Gemini Ink Workshop #4A Navigating the Changing World of Publishing: A Hands-On Workshop for Published and Unpublished Authors & #4B Book Proposal Workshop.
Instructor: Tom Payton
Skill Level: All
#4A: Publishing is undergoing seismic change. For some this is an age of confusion, frustration and the fear of getting lost in the crowd. For others new technology, marketing and distribution models mean incredible opportunity. Figuring out where you fit and maximizing your potential is the challenge. This class will reassess and tear down preconceptions you may have about the publishing industry and how to find your place within it or figure out if and how you should go it alone and choose to not work with a publisher. Discover the true trends and future developments within the digital publishing explosion that is underway. Learn the unvarnished insider aspects of the publishing process as the publisher sees it in this practical, nuts-and-bolts class that is a must for all published and would-be authors. Registration does not require enrollment in class 4B.
#4B: Every new author wants to develop a proposal that maximizes his or her potential for success. As a parallel to the above class, the instructor will workshop your book idea and proposal at whatever stage of development you may be. The workshop fee includes a group session following class 4A, a personal review of your proposal, a written critique, and a conversation regarding the instructor’s suggestions for success in your particular project. Please submit book proposals by January 23 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Must also be enrolled in class 4A.
