WEBINAR: Alternate Paths to Traditional Publishing

When: Tuesday, June 7, 7:00pm Eastern Time

Where: Online

What: Writers and illustrators hear a lot about the “traditional” route to publication—write, revise, and polish your manuscript; query and sign with an agent; and have your agent submit your manuscript to publishers. But what about alternate routes to traditional publishing? Join us to hear four authors talk about their experiences, including those with anthology, religious, print-on-demand, small boutique, and partner publishing.

    Adam Lehrhaupt made us laugh with his entertaining monkey book, Do Not Open This Book.

    Bryan Collier demonstrated that hard work and determination pays off and his artwork was nothing short of inspiring. For 7 years, he hit the pavement until one day, someone said YES.

    Debbie Dadey taught us that a ‘no’ means you get back to the keyboard or the canvas and KEEP going.

    Linda Oatman High made us excited to be a writer and/or illustrator. Stories exist in even the smallest picture.

    And that was just Saturday morning!
