The schedule for the 2019 The C.D. Wright Women Writers Conference is up! Et Alia is a proud sponsor once again this year.
Hope you'll attend and head to the "Women and Publishing" breakout session with Eliza Borné, Jo McDougall, Crystal C. Mercer, Katy Henriksen, and Et Alia director Erin Wood. Erin is also offering publishing consultations for the conference and you can sign up for those as well, info in link if you hunt around a bit (or if you can't find, let us know and we’ll make the connection).
Hope to see you November 8-9 in Conway!
Breakout Session I, 9:15–10:30 am
1. Women and Publishing
(Erin Wood, Eliza Borné, Jo McDougall, Crystal C. Mercer, and Katy Henriksen)
Location: Fireplace Room, McCastlain Hall
Small press leadership and publishing, New York publishing houses, academic presses, book and textile arts, magazine publishing, manuscript editing, and writing—these women have done it all and have each shared their stories in Women Make Arkansas: Conversations with 50 Creatives by Erin Wood (Et Alia Press, 2019). The five will discuss how to land internships and jobs in publishing, how to break through barriers, self-publishing versus large press versus small press, tips to keep publishing and editing jobs from killing your own writing, and how to avoid potential pitfalls along the way.
