Self-Publishing with Vinnie Kinsella 

This Meeting Is In-person Only

Place: Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye St, Newport, OR 97365


Self-Publishing has become a preferred option for many writers, but is it right for you? Join publishing specialist Vinnie Kinsella and the Willamette Writers Coast Chapter for an exploration of how self-publishing compares to both traditional and hybrid publishing, on April 20, at the Newport Public Library from 2:00 – 3:30 pm.

Drawing from nearly twenty years of experience working with self-published authors, Kinsella will discuss the risks and rewards of publishing your own work. Attendees will gain a clear picture of what the process involves and how to avoid some of its more common pitfalls.
