Newport: Publishing 101 with Suzanne Fyhrie Parrott
September 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Publishing 101 with Suzanne Fyhrie Parrott
For any writer who aspires to be an author, knowing how to publish a book is essential. Author/publisher Suzanne Fyhrie Parrott will teach a free workshop on publishing at the Sept. 15 meeting of Willamette Writers Coast Chapter. The meeting takes place from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Newport Public Library.
This workshop covers the basics of the book publishing industry and offers resources to choose which publishing path best fits you and your work.
“Now, more than at any other time in history,” Parrott says, “there are more opportunities and possibilities to write, share, and publish a story–and interact with an audience. Whether you are after the traditional publishing experience, complete with an agent, editor, and publisher, or want to self-publish your book, it’s completely within your grasp.”
