Presented by Wordier Than Thou at Creative Pinellas, Largo FL

Tampa Bay Publishing Conference

Learn the ins and outs of the publishing industry at our intimate and informative conference.

Learn the ins and outs of the publishing industry at our intimate and informative conference, now in its third year. Rather than focusing on writing craft, we’ll talk about topics surrounding the business side of publishing – self-promotion and marketing tips, querying editors and agents, avoiding the slush pile, community building, contests and anthologies, publishing platforms, overcoming rejection, self-publishing vs. traditional publishing, and more!

We’ve also invited published authors and other industry professionals to share their personal journeys and what they’ve learned along the way.

Our talented guest speakers include Erica Dawson, Steph Post, Erin Mitchell, Gianna Russo, Dwight & Rebecca MacPherson, Mark Muncy, Kimberly Lojewski, Tara Lynn Masih, Eli Gonzalez, David James Poissant, Tamara Lush, Brian Edgar, Sandra Gail Lambert and Arielle Haughee.

Throughout the weekend, we’re also hosting several social events including our Get Lit! Lecture Series (Thursday, Feb. 27), an evening of author readings, and our Tampa Bay Publshing Salon, which features indie presses and literary journals/anthologies from throughout the state.
