Write to Publish is a unique writers’ conference focused on publishing. This year, workshops will cover the basics of getting published in the nonfiction genre, and a panel of writers will speak about their personal experiences navigating the industry. In addition, local vendors from the publishing industry will contribute their knowledge and services to attendees. As in years past, Write to Publish promises to help demystify the publishing process by offering insight, resources, and encouragement for burgeoning writers.
Write to Publish is the brainchild of Ooligan Press, a nonprofit trade press run by students of Portland State University’s Book Publishing graduate program. In addition to producing high quality books celebrating the rich literary tradition of the Pacific Northwest, Ooligan is committed to teaching the art and craft of publishing.
This year’s conference will also host a lunch catered by California Pizza Kitchen and a writing contest for non-fiction submissions limited by 2,000 words. The grand prize winner will receive a pitch to agent Betsy Amster of Betsy Amster Literary Agency! Submissions are due by Feb. 9th.
