Write to Publish:
May 22 and 23, 2010
Organized by Ooligan Press, Write to Publish aims to demystify the publishing process for writers. Write to Publish is different from other writing conferences in that we do not focus on the craft of writing, but rather on the process of getting published via lectures, workshops, and industry professionals available to answer your questions. Speakers at this years conference include Chuck Palahniuk and Ursula K. Le Guin.
