The life of a writer can be a solitary one; and while an active social media platform goes some way towards overcoming feelings of isolation, it’s not the same as meeting people face-to-face. There are lots of ways you can do this, from writing classes and socials, to digital conferences like our #SelfPubCon. If you haven't registered yet, the next conference is in less than three weeks, hop over here to sign up. Elizabeth Dulcie, author member, has just been to two in-person writing conferences and is here to tell us why you should be attending conferences too.
With the conference season well under way now, we’re pleased to share a preview of BookBaby’s Independent Authors Conference 2018 (#IndieAuthorCon) which will take place in Philadelphia, USA, November 2-4.
And ALLi has two free tickets, each worth $199, to give away to two lucky ALLi members!
Sponsored by BookBaby, one of the nation’s leading self-publishing services companies, The Independent Authors Conference is the only US event dedicated to self-publishing.
At the conference, independent authors will learn from industry experts what it takes to publish, market, and sell their books, while managing their writing career.
You may choose from more than thirty keynotes, workshops, and sessions. Topics include:
- cover design
- sales funnels
- hybrid publishing
- publishing in global markets
- and more
