Thank you for attending IPNE's 9th Annual Independent Publishers & Authors Conference, Nov. 6-7, 2020!
"Publishing During a Pandemic"
Conference recordings coming soon to registered attendees!
Are you planning on writing a book, in the process, or are you just curious about the process of getting a manuscript to an audience?
Whether you publish traditionally or DIY, you'll likely be in charge of things like your own publicity and marketing, for example, or and you'll need to know about book design, "meta data," ISBNs, and book launches. The two days of sessions on the publishing process were capped by our 8th Annual Book Awards.
At the 9th Annual IPNE Publishers & Writers Conference, we're bringing in speakers like keynoters Angela Bole (CEO, IBPA) and Carol Gino (author, Me & Mario Puzo) and many other experts who have been there, done that, and are eager to share their expertise to help you flatten your learning curve.
"Publishing During a Pandemic" is the theme of the 2020 Conference, coming online on Friday and Saturday Nov. 6 and 7. There's no charge to attend and you don't need to be a publisher, published author, or even a New Englander to join the virtual crowd.
