Publishing 101: Small Presses, an Online Panel

October 26, 2020 | Billings Public Library Media Release

Calling all writers, Billings Public Library and Con-Tinual are premiering a special panel discussion on small presses and their potential to support and publish authors, Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at 5pm via BPL’s Facebook page.

BPL explains that Small Presses are often touted as giving writers the best of both worlds – the creative freedom and direct influence on product of indie publishing, with the editing, cover design, and marketing support of traditional publishing. Perhaps you’ve been wondering if the small press route is the right path to publishing for you? This is your opportunity to do some learning! 

Join authors Samantha Bryant and Michelle Berger, along with authors/small press owners, John Hartness (Falstaff Books), Jason Graves (Prospective Press), and Rachel Brune (Crone Girls Press) to learn the ins and outs and ups and downs of small press life. 

BPL is partnering with Con-Tinual: The Online Con that Never Ends to bring this program to the community, and just in time for National Novel Writing Month!

Con-Tinual is an online community dedicated to a place to celebrate science fiction, fantasy, and romance in TV, film, and books, without the barrier of distance. Its moderators regularly create and post panel discussions and tutorial videos through its Facebook page.

Moderator Samantha Bryant is a middle school teacher by day and novelist by night. She’s published novels and short stories with a variety of small presses. Her work, including the Menopausal Superheroes series, features speculative fiction with a feminist bent.
