Ali McCart to Speak at Ooligan's Write to Publish Conference


Ooligan Press presents Oolicon: Write to Publish Conference 2010
The goal of Write to Publish is to demystify the publishing industry for writers. During this two-day conference you will learn the skills you need to transform your writing from a creative endeavor to a published work.

Our workshops will help you understand the world of publishing, from finding your audience to copyright law. On the first day, Workshop Day, you will gain insight into:
• Polishing your manuscript
• The agent/writer relationship
• Finding a publisher
• Self-publishing a manuscript (Taught by Indigo's Ali McCart!)
• …and many more!

On day two of Write to Publish, you will have the chance to rub elbows with industry professionals at Open House Day. Take this opportunity to make valuable contacts and maybe even pitch your idea to a local publisher. Open House Day will also feature Chuck Palahniuk, Ursula K. Le Guin, Shannon Wheeler, Deborah Hopkinson, Virginia Euwer Wolff, and Lilith Saintcrow, who will share their experiences with the publishing industry.

Write to Publish 2010 is about empowering you as a writer so you are one step closer to getting published.
