Topics to be covered are creating a publisher name, website domain, establishing accounts with Create Space and Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), building a professional looking title page, copyright page, dynamic cover, ordering an ISBN number and bar code, registering your work with the U.S. Copyright Office, applying for a Library of Congress Preassigned Control Number, uploading your manuscripts to Amazon and Kindle, and selecting Amazon royalty, payment, and marketing options.

We strongly recommend registering in advance (online). Along with your paid registration you will receive a Writer's Workbook and an autographed copy of the author's novel, "Montana Harvest ".

Please join us for this  hands-on informative workshop packed with valuable and practical guidance on how you can self-publish your work.

Workshop Description

This course, intended for those who have had previous writing experience, will focus on short story writing, novels, and novellas. Aspiring writers are most welcome, as are those who have a current project in various stages of completion. We will use the Iowa Writing Workshop approach to facilitate critiques and commentary constructive to the writer’s work and goals.

Students should bring enough copies (max of 12) of their writing project (no more than 10 double-spaced pages) with them to the first class. The other students will receive these copies and bring them home for critique where they will then be the subject for group discussion at the next class. This will be the weekly class format for the remainder of the course.

Finding and recognizing your voice, outlining, structuring the plot, establishing the story arc, giving your characters depth and roundness, evoking the scene through description and detail, experimenting with points of view, and rewriting beginnings and endings are ongoing issues for exploration throughout the course as will any other pertinent topics that may evolve during class time.
