Virtual Roundtable: There's More Than One Way to Publish a Book

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM


Hosted by our Writer-in-Residence, Dani McClain, this panel discussion brings together writers and publishing professionals who will offer their perspectives on how to bring a book to publication and successfully share it with the world.

Panelists will speak to their experiences finding a literary agent, writing a book proposal and working with publishers. We will explore costs related to self-publishing and the freedom it allows, what to expect of an editor, the importance of marketing and publicity, and how authors build an audience for their books. This event will take place 2-3 p.m. on December 12.

Kathy Y. Wilson
is a multi-hyphenated nerd: a  writer-teacher-closet-poet-community-worker-playwright and sometimes, for the right audience, she will bust a rhyme. Known mostly as the author of the incendiary column “Your Negro Tour Guide,” and the book of the same title, listeners nationwide know her for her National Public
Radio commentaries on “All Things Considered.” Still more audiences know Wilson for the eponymous stage play adapted from her book. In September 2014, the Library Foundation of the Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library named her its first-ever Writer-In-Residence. She sometimes works on her next book, Dialysis Diaries: How Hattie McDaniel Taught Me To Pee Again.

Amy Dean
is the Editorial and Marketing Director for blue manatee press, an independent children’s book publisher in Cincinnati, OH. Amy’s varied background as an educator and bookseller provided the perfect foundation for developing children’s literature, and there is nothing Amy loves more than creating enduring and meaningful content that encourages lifelong learning and the joy of reading. Amy holds an M.Ed. from Xavier University and a B.A. in English Literature from Miami University. Amy is also a graduate of the Yale School of Management Book Publishing Course and the Denver Publishing Institute.

Richard Hunt is president and publisher of AdventureKEEN and former president and publisher of Emmis Books.
