Want to Get Published? How To! (And How Not To!)

Want to get published? Want to create good relationships with publishers? Of course you do! Join Tod Davies, editorial director of indie Exterminating Angel Press and author herself, to discover the FIVE ways to avoid rejection…and the FIVE ways to make sure you are rejected!

In a highly interactive, lively (even, we hope, raucous) talk about reaching out to publishers, Tod will spell out those ways to get the advantage in your court. And the ways you can lose the whole game before you even start playing. About Our Speaker – Tod Davies

Since 2008, Tod Davies has helmed indie Exterminating Angel Press, a proud member of the Southern Oregon Literary Alliance (SOLA), and the Cascadia Publishers group. EAP publishes books that question dominant cultural stories in entertaining and accessible ways, including Mike Madrid’s The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines, and her own The History of Arcadia series: Snotty Saves the Day, Lily the Silent, and The Lizard Princess. As well as publisher, she’s been just about everything you can be as a writer (and everything you need to be to support being a writer): screenwriter, indie film producer, radio host, and author. She wrote the film Three Businessmen, co-wrote Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, produced Revengers Tragedy, starring Eddie Izzard and Chris Eccleston, and documentaries for the UK’s Channel 4. She’s spoken about, and taught, writing and producing at many venues over the years. If there’s one thing she knows, it’s how to build relationships in creative communities. And she’ll share that knowledge on July 5th.

As always, the doors open at 6:30 and the meeting starts at 7:00 pm.
