Psst... wanna know where you can find great writing and publishing resources? Join the St. Louis Publishers Association (SLPA) on Wednesday, October 12 to discover websites bursting with advice and information that will help you learn how to write, publish, and sell books like a professional.  

We will show you online goodies with the answers to many questions — even questions you don’t know to ask.

    • Why you should join local writers groups 
    • When to seek legal advice 
    • Learn influential publishing industry experts 
    • Discover important publishing websites  
    • Plus, our favorite useful books to help navigate your writing and publishing journey 

We’ll also tell you about local writing groups and where to find writing classes in St. Louis, highlight our favorite useful books, and share our advice on starting your own company (whether as a writer or a publisher).   

This SLPA meeting will include a walkthrough of online and local resources and will feature a panel discussion with three publishing professionals:
 

Peggy Nehmen is committed to successful design solutions and excellence. Her company, Nehmen-Kodner provides book design, branding and marketing for self-published authors, start-ups, and established companies. Peggy helps authors through the design process to produce customized book covers and interiors. Clients benefit from her keen sense of typography, printing, and production. 

Andrew Doty
began publishing poetry at the age of 16, then earned a degree in creative writing before pursuing a career as an editor. Through his editing company,
Editwright, he provides comprehensive editorial services (developmental editing, substantive editing, line editing, copyediting, and proofreading) to independent authors, small publishers, and professional companies. His portfolio includes both bestselling books and celebrity authors. In addition to incessant reading and editing, Andrew continues to write and publish poetry as well as create and record music.
