From our friends at Ooligan Press:
Ooligan Press will host its annual conference and fundraiser, Write to Publish, on May 22 and 23, 2010. Award-winning authors Chuck Palahniuk and Ursula K. Le Guin will be sharing their publishing experiences at the open house event on May 23 at Portland State University. Several other noteworthy Portland-area writers will also be appearing, including Shannon Wheeler, Deborah Hopkinson, Virginia Euwer Wolff, and Lilith Saintcrow.
Write to Publish is a two-day conference that demystifies the publishing process for writers of all levels of experience. Day one of the event, May 22, will include workshops for aspiring authors and publishing professionals. Workshops will address subjects such as the state of publishing, the writer/agent relationship, young adult trends and audience, and sustainable publishing. May 23 is Open House Day, featuring vendor booths and professional resources such as agents, editors, regional publishers, literary magazines, and designers, along with the author appearances and signings. Tickets for the Open House are $10 ($8 for students). Tickets are only available at the door.
Ooligan Press is a nonprofit, student-run, general trade press that publishes books honoring the cultural and natural diversity of the Pacific Northwest. It is affiliated with Portland State University’s master’s program in writing and publishing.
