Portland: Small Press with Ben Gorman

November 1, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Willamette Writers Portland Presents

Entering the World of Small Press with Ben Gorman

Join us Tuesday, November 1st at 7:00 pm at our new location. 1336 NW Flanders St. Portland (Not online). Benjamin Gorman shares his experience starting a small press. He’ll talk about developments in this fast-changing industry and share tips for authors considering self-publishing, submitting to small presses, or aiming for traditional publishing. Learning about marketing and publishing will not only improve your manuscript’s odds, but it should change the way you write … for the better!

About Benjamin Gorman

Benjamin Gorman is an award-winning high school English teacher, political activist, author, poet, and co-publisher at Not a Pipe Publishing. He lives in Independence, Oregon with his fiancee, bibliophile and guillotine aficionado Chrystal, his favorite son, Noah, and his dog, E.V. (External Validation). His novels are The Sum of Our Gods, Corporate High School, The Digital Storm, and Don’t Read This Book. He’s also the author of two books of poetry: When She Leaves Me and This Uneven Universe. Corporate High School became an Amazon bestseller in 2016, and The Digital Storm was named a “Top Five Book Pick” by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
