Writers wishing to know more about the modern publishing process are invited to Oasis, an online publishing workshop.

The four-hour Zoom workshop will feature four speakers with experience in the writing and publishing realm. Beginning writers will receive the tools to start their publishing journey as well as have any questions answered.

The workshop registration fee is $25 and credit cards are accepted. Registrants will receive login information before the event which starts at 9 a.m. CT and ends at 1 p.m. CT. A registration link can be found here.

“At the end of this lively morning, new writers will have a step-by-step plan to begin this fantastic journey,” Brunner says.

Session topics include:

J. Alexander (Alex) Greenwood presents to prevent participants from being scammed by those that prey on writers’ dreams. There are more options than ever for independent writers to bring their work to market but there are potential pitfalls due to immoral business practices.

Self-Editing 11 a.m.-11:50 a.m. CT

Book Formatting 12:00 p.m.-12:50 p.m. CT

Les Lynam will present how to format the interior of a book so it will look good to the reader.
