Online Southern: Publishing Primer with Laura Stanfill

January 30, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Willamette Writers Southern Oregon

A Publishing Primer for Anxious Authors by Laura Stanfill

Laura Stanfill is back! If you missed our Portland Chapter meeting this month, hop online and find out more about Publishing with Laura Stanfill.

Laura Stanfill

Laura Stanfill has always worried about her authors’ worries, as the publisher of Forest Avenue Press. But in 2022, when her debut novel came out with Lanternfish Press, she had to navigate those fears and bumps in the road as the creator of original work, not just as a champion of someone else’s project. On January 30th from 6:30-7:30PM online, Laura will talk about common misperceptions about the publishing industry and anxiety-inducing situations as a way to breathe, laugh and shake off the things we can’t control as authors. Bring your questions and concerns to this interactive conversation.

About Laura Stanfill

Laura Stanfill is the publisher of Forest Avenue Press and the author of Singing Lessons for the Stylish Canary (Lanternfish), Powell’s best book of 2022. She has won two Oregon Literary Fellowships for publishing and was awarded the inaugural Independent Book Publishers Association scholarship to the Yale Publishing Course. She believes in building a literary community at the local level as a way to subvert the scarcity model of publishing.

Join us online this January 30th @ 6:30 pm (Zoom Room Opens at 6:20PM).
