Publishing University, a conference by publishers for publishers sponsored by the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), will be held in Chicago on April 26 and 27. Designed for all levels of publishers the conference offers the expertise of more than 50 publishing experts, giving attendees the tools needed right now and in the future to grow book sales.
As an affiliate member of the IBPA, the St. Louis Publishers Association is again offering a scholarship opportunity to one of its members.
The estimated value of the scholarship is approximately $400. It includes:
- Full attendance at the IBPA Publishing University
- Networking opportunities with peers and mentors
- Face-to-face access to some of the most respected names in the world of publishing
- A special event bringing together all scholarship recipients
- And so much more!
Please note that in order to qualify for the scholarship you must be a member of both the IBPA and the SLPA. All other expenses of the conference will be the responsibility of the attendee. As a former scholarship recipient, I can testify that this is a wonderful conference and well worth the time and investment.
