May the 4th Be With Us… For Inside Publishing!

Inside Publishing is a free and open-to-all “glimpse behind the curtain” of the book industry. In four 50-minute sessions you’ll get the inside scoop from the authors, editors, or publishers of four different books. We’ll look at various genres, hear about habits, processes, favourite Slurpee flavours, what really fires an editor’s rockets, and a whole lot more.

We are proud to present this new event in partnership with Millennium Library!

When: Saturday, May 4, 10 am – 3 pm

Where: Millennium Library, Carol Shields Auditorium

The Line-Up

10 am – Jodi Carmichael, author of Spaghetti is NOT a Finger Food, and Carol Szuminsky from Peanut Butter Press

11 am – Meira Cook, author of The House on Sugarbush Road, and Maurice Mierau from Enfield & Wizenty

1 pm – Chadwick Ginther, author of Thunder Road, and Jamis Paulson from Turnstone Press

2 pm – Charlene Diehl, author of Out of Grief, Singing, and Karen Haughian from Signature Editions

Moderated by Joanne Kelly

But wait… there’s more!

    I attended this conference and it was first rate. I am just beginning to write fiction for both children and adults after many years working as a free lance journalist and newspaper columnist. I got so much good advice from your speakers. They were all well prepared and your moderator did an excellent job. Sessions started and ended right on time, you had coffee and snacks and best of all it was free! Thank you to the organizers and presenters. It was a Saturday well spent!
