Publishing Your Book: And Doing It Yourself with Cindy Bellinger / August 11th, 2012
No matter the publishing goals — from back-of-the-room sales to mass market fiction — students will learn the necessary steps required in the publishing process: copyediting, getting forewords and blurbs, buying ISBNs and barcodes, and designing the interior and cover of a book. In this hands-on workshop, students will create a personalized production schedule with defined marketing strategies for print and online promotion; learn about distribution, ways to format manuscripts for e-books, and how to avoid the “red-flags” that reviewers quickly spot.
Cindy Bellinger wears many hats—journalist, poet, teacher, author, publisher, gardener, and designer—and enjoys and takes great pride in them all. A friend wrote, “You wield a chainsaw like a logger and write poetry that breaks people’s hearts.” An early book, Someone Stole My Outhouse, is a collection of newspaper columns she wrote for the Santa Fe New Mexican. Her most recent, Into the Heat: My Love Affair with Trees, Fire, Saws & Men, is her fifth published work. Visit her website www.cindybellinger.com
