Build A Book Workshop

Have you longed to see your work in print and feel the heft of a book in your hands?  Now is the time to turn dreams into reality.

The Build a Book Workshop, hosted by the Palouse Writers’ Guild will walk you through the steps of self-publishing from start to finish.  Whether you long to publish a collection of short stories or poems, a memoir, novel, or other work, by the end of the workshop your manuscript will be formatted and ready for printing.

Bring your laptop and all files associated with your project, including any graphics.  In just 3 hours you will learn how to format your text, upload a cover, format the spine, and discover the importance of ISBN numbers and bar codes.
