Workshops & Panels
At IPNE, we believe wholeheartedly in the value of hands-on, practical knowledge transfer in a variety of formats targeting diverse learning styles. That's why we're designing a smorgasbord of pithy hands-on sessions for you to choose from. Check the registration page for the latest!
We are especially excited about this year's theme, "Collaboration Is the New Competition." We're planning a special collaborator-matching program at the Conference, so let us know: How do you collaborate to produce, publish, and market your books? What services or assistance would help you most? What talents and skills can you offer others?
