Dawson Daily News Print and Publishing Symposium 5th Edition Sunday Only, 1:00 - 3:00 Dan Dowhal, Self-Publishing Workshop As the landscape of traditional publishing shifts, more and more authors are choosing to self-publish their works. This workshop walks you through the physical steps of self-publishing, including setting up a free account with Lulu.com or Amazon Create Space, formatting your manuscript, creating the front and back matter, getting ISBN numbers, designing a cover, and submitting to the stores. It also addresses e-books, plus paid “freemium” services offered by the production houses, including design, marketing, publicity, and distribution. Presented in partnership by the Dawson City Community Library, Parks Canada, and KIAC with financial support from Arts Fund. 19
