Panel Discussion presented by The Independent Writers of Southern California (http://iwosc.org)
The changing world of publishing has struggled with the yin and yang of traditional vs. avant garde.Â Now the newer forms of publishing are gaining a foothold in an ever-increasing percentage of the market.
Electronic publishing and POD (Print on Demand) have provided smaller publishers with low-cost alternatives and a new marketplace. The big publishers are agonizing over this, trying to cope, and playing catch-up
with the smaller concerns.
It's easier than ever to get onto the bandwagon, and even though the changes are still upon us daily, once you're in the electronic market, it is increasingly simple to upgrade to accommodate the new rules and methods and navigate the growing competition.
We will discuss the ins and outs, the methods, marketing and reasons to go electronic. And we will endeavor to keep it simple and show you a real, creative, and inexpensive way to get your word out.
IWOSC — Independent Writers of Southern California — provides writers with several opportunities to get together with other writers each month. We have casual satellite get-togethers in various areas; we have a seminar most months, and we have a general meeting that is typically a panel discussion about a writing-related topic.
Many of our members are published professionals or professional writers of other sorts, while others are working on breaking into the professional writing scene. Some write books, others write for magazines, others do public relations. If you're a writer, at any level, in any genre, we invite you to come check us out.
