Self-publishing workshop

September 25th, 2005     by Nicole Cohen     Comments

Shameless’s friend Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha is teaching a workshop on self-publishing and chapbook making next month. The two-hour hands-on workshop will teach you binding techniques and how to design, produce and distribute your book. She’ll cover copyright, “how not to screw yourself out of being published by a ‘real press’ later” and the fine art of using free and dumpstered materials and scamming free photocopies. Useful tricks for anyone to know, especially if you’re an independent magazine publisher.

Leah will also cover the histories of feminist and queer presses, and First Nations community-controlled papers. She’s an awesome lady and this workshop is bound to be productive and fun. And please, send us a copy of your book when you’re done, we’d love to review it.

When: October 8

Where:This Ain’t the Rosedale Library (481A Church St., Toronto. Call 416-929-9912 to register)

Cost: $30 or $20 for students and unemployed
