Indie publishing conference held

Independent Publishers of New England (IPNE), led by Charlotte Pierce of Arlington, is holding its annual conference on Sept. 25-26 in Portsmouth, N.H.

The conference will feature keynote speakers and panelists from Publisher's Weekly, IBPA, Shelf Awareness and Ingram Content Group. On Saturday, breakout sessions include workshops and panels geared toward independent authors and publishers, from those just exploring the field to more experienced publishers.

"We've also built in plenty of time for networking and to enjoy the great food at the Sheraton Harborside," noted conference coordinator Pamela J. Fenner of Michaelmas Press in Amesbury, Mass.

The cost for members is $170; the $195 fee for non-members includes a one-year membership in IPNE with full member benefits.

"We really feel that this year's Annual Conference will be a game-changing experience for everyone who attends," said Pierce, IPNE president, in a news release. "I've been to four of the five conferences and always get way more value than the cost. This is an information-packed, hands-on event attracting publishers, authors, designers, distributors, printing executives; you can get up close and personal with many of the movers and shakers in the book-publishing world."

Friday keynote: Reading for a Living: It Takes History to Make History, by Robert Gray, Shelf Awareness

  • Saturday keynote: Who Holds the Power in the Book World? with Jim Milliot, Publishers Weekly, & Nancy Morgan Stosik, Ingram Content Group.
  • The conference schedule, presenters, and workshops are linked from IPNE's conference registration page. Visitors to the IPNE website can learn about member benefits and other cooperative marketing events sponsored by the organization throughout October. The IPNE Annual Meeting and Board Elections is at HF Group in Charlestown on Dec. 8.
