Kanab’s third annual self-publishing seminar will take place on March 4 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kanab Library meeting room. The seminar offers classes on the basics of self-publishing and a class on publishing family histories taught by Heaton family historian Carolyn Grygla.
Janette Rallison, a traditionally published author, will talk about the pros and cons of traditional publishing versus self-publishing. Annette Lyon, a hybrid author who does both independent and traditional publishing, will give an overview of the process of getting manuscripts ready for publication. Award-winning author Donna Weaver will talk about the process of finding the right book cover, and Lindzee Armstrong will teach how to market books. The seminar will end with a panel composed of all the presenters and seminar chairman Liz Adair, who will discuss how to avoid overload followed by a general question-and-answer period.
The cost is $40 online or $50 at the door and includes lunch. Online information and registration can be found at kanabwritersconference.com. The Kanab Library is located at 374 N. Main St. in Kanab.
