Writing a book can be a challenging but rewarding endeavour. For all you aspiring authors out there in Vancouver, we have just the event for you. On March 6, LifeTree Media is co-hosting a Book Publishing Boot Camp with Pink Velvet Couch, an all-day conference for women entrepreneurs on what it takes to plan, write, publish and market a nonfiction book that can boost your business, showcase your expertise, and build your personal or professional brand.
You’ll hear from an expert lineup of publishers, editors, agents, marketing experts and published authors, including:
- Nancy Flight, Greystone Books
- Robert Mackwood, Seventh Avenue Literary Agency
- Zoe Grams, ZG Communications
In the afternoon, our own publisher Maggie Langrick will deliver an interactive, deep-dive presentation on how to develop a book concept that will reach your target readers and meet your objectives.
We’ll round out the day with a lively, candid panel discussion with successful published authors who can tell you what it was really like.
This event will be a fun and informative day of keynote presentations, panel discussions and interactive exercises, covering:
- The changing publishing landscape: Who the players are, and how the business works.
- Self-publishing, traditional or hybrid: Which one is right for you?
- Marketing your book: Tips and tricks from traditional book publicists and guerrilla book marketers.
