On Saturday, September 29, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, a host of Indiana writers will gather at Central Library for the 2012 Indy Author Fair.
You’ll be able to meet authors, and there will be panel discussions focused on different aspects of getting published.
The winners and finalists of the 2012 Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award will discuss their writing and connections to Indiana.
Indiana Poet Laureate Karen Kovacik will give a workshop on “The Unique Art of Marketing Poetry.”
Rebecca Kai Dotlich will focus on “Writing and Selling a Picture Book.”
Skip Berry will offer strategies for “Writing a Book Proposal.”
Bryan Furuness will give a program on “Getting Started,” for authors who are having a hard time doing so.
Looking over a list dated August 27th (and the PDF brochure that you can link to from within that list), I count about 60 authors who will be participating in the day’s events. I’m probably missing someone. The winner of the Indiana Author Award in the Emerging Author Category will be announced, and all winners and finalists honored, at the evening’s (sold-out) Awards Dinner.
