Indie Author Fringe Spread the Word

Running 24 sessions over 24 continuous hours allows our members, and other authors round the globe, to attend some live sessions, no matter where they’re located. (But don’t worry, we don’t expect you to stay up all night! You can always catch up later.)

Over the course of the year, we take authors across all stages of the author-publishing journey: writing, editorial, design, production, distribution, sales, marketing, rights licensing, money matters and living the indie author life. 

And thanks to the generosity of our speakers and sponsors, it's all free.

If you haven't already registered for free, just click this button and we'll keep you in the loop of what to expect for our next free online conference.
