Yen Ooi Indie Author Fringe SpeakerYou’ve Written it, now Own it: Understanding your Author role

With: Jay Artale


Yen Ooi and Jay Artale help beginning authors understand the freedoms and responsibilities of self-publishing. What to DIY and what to outsource — and when.


Yen is a reader and author of science fiction, and a consultant in publishing. She holds postgraduate degrees in English Literature and International Business, and a Bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music. Having enjoyed a vibrant career in music touring, education, and management, Yen started writing in 2008.

She has had various publications since then: a novel, Sun: Queens of Earth; a collection of short stories, poems and illustrations, A Suspicious Collection; and short stories and poems published in other collections. She hopes to explore further the role of fiction in understanding humanity, inspecting what it is that drives us forward in our lives. Soon, Yen will be pursuing a practice-based PhD, specialising in science fiction.
