I have exciting news about Write to Publish, Ooligan Press's book conference! But I have to keep it a secret until March 10.
However, I can divulge a little more information about the conference. It takes place on May 22 and 23, 2010, at Smith Memorial Hall on the campus of Portland State University, and professional authors will be there. The conference includes a day of writing workshops and a day of author panels, all meant to encourage, inspire, and teach writers to get published. The emphasis is not on the writing process but rather on getting published.
Ooligan Press is a student-run publishing house located at Portland State University. Dennis Stovall and Laurie King wrote the firs edition of the book Classroom Publishing back in 1992, and though the book was primarily about using publishing in elementary and high school classrooms, Dennis Stovall used classroom publishing principles to start the grad school publishing program at PSU. On March 1, the second edition of Classroom Publishing came out, published by Ooligan Press. It has been completely revised and updated for today's digital publishing world. The book is available at all major book stores and online book stores.
