Demystifying Self-Publishing presented in partnership with FriesenPress

Self-publishing, who is it for and how does it work? The publishing industry today looks much different than it did a decade ago. In that time, self-publishing has outgrown its longstanding ‘vanity’ stigma and become a viable publishing option for many writers.

Whether you’re a seasoned writer seeking new adventures or an aspiring author taking your first steps into the world of self-publishing, this webinar promises to equip you with a brief understanding of the industry’s evolution, debunk common myths surrounding self-publishing, and shed light on the importance of choosing a publishing partner.

GIVEAWAY: We will be giving away a free manuscript evaluation (valued at $499) to one of the attendees of the event!

Please register for this ONLINE workshop by 3 pm on March 6th, and you will be sent a Zoom link by 4 pm.

If you haven’t received your Zoom link, please check your spam/junk mail folders.
