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.

Massage therapist by day, a birth doula by night. I write fantasy, fiction and a smidgen of science fiction. My stories feature young, brave heroines who always save themselves. I have a deep fascination with my Scandinavian heritage and a love of nature; these two things have inspired me to write VALKYRIE’S CRY, a historical fiction/fantasy novel based on Norse mythology.
Wage Slave at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories who breaks up the monotony by writing about things that happen in a galaxy far, far, away. He is the NaNoWriMo Municipal Leader for Moscow, Idaho and an annual winner. However, we’ll never know what he’s published because it’s hidden away under a mysterious pen name.
A Wyoming child, I love words and the natural world. In mid-career as an astrophysicist, I study galaxy evolution and I know a fair bit about spectroscopy. Writing is an outlet for me to explore a broader range of topics than the merely technical. My debut novel features Ace Carroway, adventurer extraordinaire.
