Ooligan Press is hosting its third annual Write to Publish conference!

Ooligan is a student run, non-profit trade press, operating in conjunction with PSU’s Master in Writing and Publishing program and they are passionate about publishing. The two-day conference is designed to demystify the publishing process for writers, and will offer workshops and lectures from published authors who are chock-full of sage advice. Speakers will include Oregon Book Award winners David Biespiel and Willy Vlautin, as well as Hawthorne’s own Loretta Stinson!

The conference is a great resource for anyone interested in the industry. The goal is different from other conferences in that it doesn’t seek to workshop the creative act of writing, but to assist writers in the often daunting task of finding a publisher. Workshops will cover ideas such as marketing yourself as a writer, developing a relationship with an agent, and understanding industry trends. 

Write to Publish is May 21st and 22nd at PSU. Purchase a full pass to Day One and you get free admittance to Day Two. You can also enroll in workshops on an individual basis.
