IPNE and the Robbins Library Host Publishing Workshop and Book Awards Ceremony

22 Nov 2017 11:58 AM | Deleted user

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, IPNE and the Robbins Library in Arlington MA co-sponsored a publishing workshop on How to Publish Your Book and hosted the awards ceremony for this year's IPNE Book Awards competition.

Panelists Eddie Vincent (Encircle Publications), Susannah Noel (Noel Editorial), Mellisa Sherlin (Writers Business School), Glenn C. Koenig (Message Rain) and Charlotte Pierce (Pierce Press) shared their publishing insights with an audience brimming with questions. The discussion ranged from publishing models to editing to ISBN's to distribution and marketing. The workshop culminated with each panelist giving the audience one Do and one Don't tip as advice for indie publishers. Jill Cofsky (Jill Cofsky Voice Actor) and Nelson Suit (Inkspokes Media) acted as co-moderators.

The event was also the occasion for the presentation of the 2017 IPNE Book Awards honoring independently published works entered in this year's competition (and for IPNE members to get together to catch up and meet new friends). Winners and finalists were presented award certificates in each of 9 categories, plus the IPNE Book of the Year. Congratulations to all and in particular to Chuck Veit and his book The Yankee Expedition to Sebastopol (published by 31by5), which won this year's IPNE Book of the Year Award. All winners and finalists are posted on our the IPNE 2017 Book Awards Winners and Finalists page.


Thank you to all who helped with this event and the book awards, including the book awards entrants, members of the book awards committee, the judges, the Robbins Library and all of you who took time out to attend!
