There are lots of great opportunities for learning with this year’s workshops at the Self-Published Book Festival. All of the workshops are free, though we do ask for registration for everything but the keynote. There will be three workshop sessions this year: two on Saturday and one on Sunday.
Let’s take a look at the offerings in Session 1 – Saturday, November 7, 1:00 – 2:30
- “A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Publishing,” presented by Judy Shenouda
Judy is a self-published author of two books, Career Success in 12 Easy Steps: A Journal; and A Bisl of This, A Bisl of That: Eating Our Way. Judy is also no stranger to the speaker’s podium. As the owner of Shenouda Associates, a Pittsford-based business offering technical writing, consulting, staffing, and speaking services, she has workshops, seminars, and webinars on topics like self-publishing, technical writing, and running a business. Judy is an engaging speaker who is sure to have lots of helpful advice for anyone who is thinking about writing a book and curious about the self-publishing process.
- “Promote Your Book Online,” presented by Jennifer Blanchard
Now that your book is done…what next? How do you get people to read it? “Online” can seem like a big and scary place, but Jennifer Blanchard is here to help, with a roadmap for what to do once your book is completed. Jennifer is another successful self-published author and blogger, with four ebooks and a novel to her credit. She is also a self-publishing consultant and story coach.
