We at Indigo Editing & Publications are proud to welcome Liz Prato and Jessica Glenn as guest instructors of our Saturday, March 16, classes. We value individual attention. Classes are presented in a small-group format at Indigo's offices in downtown Portland (near Powell's Burnside) to ensure participants have a close connection with the instructor. To further that mission, we offer class participants 15 percent off a one-hour consultation with an Indigo editor, to be scheduled within thirty days after the class.
Preregistration and payment are required at http://indigoediting.com/classes. Saturday, March 16
Narrative Nonfiction, Liz Prato of The Attic Institute
1:00–2:30 p.m., $45, or $70 if paired with the other class
is not your high school essay! It’s lyric essay, memoir, literary
journalism and creative nonfiction. Come again? Okay: Narrative
nonfiction blends facts with the storytelling techniques of fiction to
keep the reader engaged while discovering a new world. We’ll discuss
what narrative nonfiction is, and isn’t, and will relish examples from
modern masters of the form.
Book Publicity for Authors, Jessica Glenn of MindBuck Media
2:45–4:15 p.m., $45, or $70 if paired with the other class
publicity is different than any other type of publicity and often seems
to authors like an option rather than a necessity. Before considering
your book release date or even contacting agents and publishers, you
will need a watertight marketing and publicity plan. Without it,
statistically, you are highly unlikely to find receptive agents,
publishers, and ultimately readers. You are also unlikely to sell more
than 50–150 books total. In this class, Jessica Glenn will lead you
through the phases of book publicity from six months before the release
date to three weeks after the launch. Learn how book publicity can make
the best use of bloggers; how to use radio, print, and TV to your
advantage; and why and when to organize book tours. This class is best
suited to authors with finished or close-to-finished manuscripts who
plan to pitch, authors who already have publishers, or authors who are
independently publishing but need to plan their release.
