From publishing new books, new titles in a series, or e-books, it’s imperative to “Spread the Word.” For each and every conference offering—each keynote, each panel, each intensive session, and each event—spreading the word will be at the forefront.

Program highlights:

Keynotes by Joe Rohde, creative executive, Walt Disney Imagineering; Thatcher Wine, founder of Juniper Books; and H. Kevin Miserocchi, executive director at Tee and Charles Addams foundation
Preconference intensive sessions, including “How to Sell TV, Movie, and Foreign Rights” and “Data Speaks: How to Leverage your Sales Track Record to Sell Your Next Book.”
• An extended publisher/head of house roundtable
Sessions on “Libraries and Technology,” “Getting Organized and Being Efficient,” “How Small/Medium Publishers Can Act Like Big Houses and Turn Self-publishing into an Opportunity not a Threat,” “Direct to Consumer Sales,” “The Business of Creativity,” “Resolving Publishing Legal Questions,” and “Royalties: Best Practices”
Peer-to-peer roundtable discussions for sharing ways to prevail in this transforming industry

• Many networking and social opportunities including the PubWest bowling tournament
• “Speedy Spiels,” where selected attendees/speakers have four minutes to share something they’ve
found to be helpful in their publishing experience.
• WeNote, Not Keynote: An Open Discussion about Publishing Challenges in the Marketplace

Don’t miss PUBWEST 2015 and the opportunity to learn, network, and get energized!
