On Saturday, August 25th, I participated in Pandora Collective’s Summer Dream Literary Arts Festival. I was a featured author in the children’s author tent, where I gave a 30-minute talk about what inspires me as a writer.
Later that day, I gave a one-hour talk on publishing – focusing on the difference between getting paid to publish and paying someone else to publish you. There’s lots of misinformation out there about publishing, and if you are thinking about self-publishing you may want to take a workshop first.
By the end of the workshop, the participants were feeling much better about their publishing future. The general consensus was that they wanted someone to pay them to write, even if it means publishing their work will take much longer.
