My Edmonds News sponsor Emily Hill is presenting a workshop, “All Smart Cookies Can Publish,” during Edmonds Community College’s sixth annual BizArt conference, “The Alchemy of Adaptability,” at 9 a.m. next Saturday, March 26 on the EdCC campus.
Described as a participatory workshop that introduces the fundamentals of independent publishing, Hill’s session begins with an overview of the current state of the publishing world and advances to how, and why, independent publishing is entering the mainstream. The main body of the workshop will outline the steps involved in ePublishing (Kindle, Nook, and BookBrewer} and will include how to format and upload to Amazon.com’s CreateSpace platform.
Hill not only owns a publishing company which specializes in coaching writers toward independent publishing, she is the author/publisher of the historical novel “Jenkins: Confederate Blockade Runner,” available at the Edmonds Bookshop.

Each year BizArt features inspiring keynote speakers, informative workshops and thought provoking panel discussions, all led by artists with business savvy and other professionals who work with artists. BizArt also provides participants with numerous networking opportunities both within their own discipline and with artists from other disciplines.
