Reading and Craft Talk Series

Our Reading and Craft Talk series provides opportunities for published authors to address informal audiences on topics related to the craft of writing. Held at Great Harvest Bread Company in Anchorage, these free talks generally begin with a short reading followed by a 20-30 minute craft talk. The event concludes with a question and answer session and book signing. (Authors are responsible for providing their own books.)

THE WORLD OF SELF-PUBLISHING AND WHY

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Self-publishing takes a lot of faith in your own abilities, a bit of money, and a willingness to go it alone. Is it worth it? It all depends on what your expectations are. Elise Sereni Patkotak, Alaskan columnist and author of Parallel Logic and Coming into the City, shares her experience and insights.

Born in Philadelphia, raised in Atlantic City, brought to abrupt majority in Barrow, Patkotak’s career paths have included nurse, health administrator, social services supervisor, city rec. director, radio show host, and public information officer. She can’t wait to see what she ends up being when she grows up.
