    This workshop, led by celebrated indie publishing expert Jane Friedman, is an add-on to our Annual Conference. It was inspired in part by a board member's attendance at an IBPA affiliate webinar. We were amazed at the practical knowledge that Ms. Friedman delivered!

    Ms Friedman will address strategies for designing and structuring your publishing website, including:

    • Why to build devoted pages for each book
    • Best types of website designs/themes
    • How to boost newsletter sign-ups
    • Biggest do's and don'ts for newsletters
    • And much more!
