Join us for a fun and interactive panel discussion exploring the many different roads to publication. The panelists represent a number of diverse forms of publishing from local boutique presses to self-printing and publishing. Big publishing houses don’t have to be the dream anymore—alternative options include self-publishing, creating your own press, publishing with smaller indie outlets, or even making your own chapbook. Panelists include Karen Vielle who self-published a memoir about travel and walking, Diana Hochman, who has made her dream of writing spy novels a reality through self-publishing, Dorian Karahalios from Spokane Print and Publishing Center who has knowledge of do-it-yourself creations, and fiction writer Sharma Shields who founded Spokane’s Scablands Books, a fledgling boutique press. The panel is moderarted by Knox Gardener, publisher and editor-in chief of Entre Rios Books, a queer-run indie press from Seattle. This venue has a free parking lot.
