Award-winning Seattle author Terry Persun, Seattle’s Pink Fish Press managing editor, Renda Dodge, and Jared John Smith, Portland author, take the stage for an informal discussion about the brave new world of small press publishing. If you don’t feel that a traditional publishing deal or that the self-publishing world is for you, then maybe a small press is the answer!
Terry Persun’s Guidebook to Working with Small Independent Publishers (Pink Fish Press, 2012), presents the pros and cons of small press publishers. Jared John Smith’s Rabbit is about J, a male American folklorist, aged twenty-seven, collecting ghost stories across states for freelance pieces. Renda Belle Dodge is the author of Inked and The Indie Writer’s Workshop and is the managing editor of Line Zero, a quarterly literature and arts journal.
