BWA: Write to Publish, Publish to Sell

  • Boulder Public Library 1001 Arapahoe Avenue Boulder, CO, 80302 United States (map)

As Vice President of the Boulder Writers' Alliance, I attend and help with all of their creative writing programs.

Do you want to write to publish a book, but are confused by all the advice out there about the right path to seeing your book in print? Do you want to know about how to sell your book once it is published as well as how people get it on a major best sellers list?

Should you find an agent? (And how do you do that?) Should you go to publishers directly? Should you self-publish? Should you go print-on-demand? Yoinks! It seems like publishing is the new wild west.

While publishing is easier than it's ever been, it's also more confusing. The former gatekeepers no longer hold all the keys, but there are also a lot of people out there selling counterfeit ones. How do you figure out what the best way to do it is when all you really want to do is sit down and write?

BWA has a handful of people who know the ropes, from published authors to those of us who work in the seedy underbelly of the industry. Wanna know what we've done and what's worked?

Then this is the meeting for you.
