I'll be leading a panel on alternative publishing this Sunday as part of the Tacoma Arts Symposium!

Join this panel of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry writers as they discuss how they have used the various options of publishing including traditional publishing, self-publishing, co-publishing, independent publishing, blogs, ebooks, social media, and the author's role in promoting the book. Panelists will talk about the difference between these forms of publishing, the pros and cons of alternative publishing, what their experiences have been, and what has worked for them. Panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer period.


Of the four authors who will be there, we have experience in self-publishing, co-publishing, blogging a novel, and forming a non-profit publisher. It should be a unique opportunity to get a variety of different ideas for distributing your own writing.
