Write to Publish: Write What You Know tickets are available now!

Portland State University’s Ooligan Press is excited to announce its fifth annual Write to Publish conference, to be held February 23rd, 2013, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. at the Native American Student Community Center on the PSU campus. 

This year’s nonfiction theme, Write What You Know, will feature local authors Floyd Skloot, Lidia Yuknavitch and Kristian Williams, among others, speaking about their personal experiences navigating the industry. They will be joined by other industry professionals, with the goal of demystifying the publishing industry for burgeoning writers.  
Write to Publish is the brainchild of Ooligan Press, a nonprofit trade press run by students of Portland State University’s Book Publishing graduate program. 

This year’s conference will also host a lunch catered by California Pizza Kitchen and a writing contest for non-fiction submissions limited by 2,000 words. The grand prize winner will receive a pitch to agent Betsy Amster of Betsy Amster Literary Agency! Submissions are due by Feb. 9th.
