Instructor: Chris Register

Monday – Friday, 8/9/21 – 8/13/21 | 9:30 am – 11:00 am
Getting published has never been easy, but once upon a time the protocol was at least straightforward: writers would focus mainly on searching (and searching, and searching) for a literary agent willing to introduce their manuscript into an otherwise impenetrable industry. Of course, times have changed. While the traditional approach continues to work for many authors, an ever-expanding universe of publishing options has made ‘straightforward’ a thing of the past. Is your head buzzing with terms like .epub & .mobi, print-on-demand, audiobook AAX, offset run, and indie press? Join author and publisher Chris Register for an in-depth survey of the choices faced by today’s writers, illustrated with examples and lessons from his own winding journey through the process, and addressing questions specific to participants’ individual goals.
Chris Register is the author of Conversations With US – Great Lakes States and Conversations With US – American Southwest, published by his company, Spoke & Word Books. Before focusing full-time on writing, Chris served in the Peace Corps, graduated Georgetown Law, and litigated multiparty cases in federal court. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he also runs a writers’ critique group.
