Self-Publishing Primer

A comprehensive overview of the publishing process.

This session led by Morgana Gallaway provides a comprehensive overview of what self-publishing entails, how it works, the decisions to be made at the planning stage, and considerations relating to budget, design, printing, distribution, and marketing. It includes a great deal of Q&A to give authors clear answers to specific questions about what to expect and how to prepare.

This initial consultation includes a delivered PDF with a point-by-point guideline to self-publishing.


Most consultations can be scheduled within one week.
