In this workshop, a publisher and an author come together to deconstruct what has happened to the publishing industry in the past decade, and to explain the current paths to publishing—including traditional, indie (self-publishing), and hybrid. We’ll examine the pros and cons of each path—including the hoops you must jump through and the remunerations you can expect—and we’ll share our stories from the trenches.

This workshop is only open to current and former OWC students. Tuition discounts are not available.
