Hokkaido JALT:

Self-Publishing from Japan Workshop

Date: Sunday, April 15th, 2018 Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Workshop speaker and facilitator: Kathy Morikawa (aka Wilhelmina Penn)

An online pre-registration form will be set up soon (please refer to the JALT Hokkaido facebook page as it will be posted there when ready). This will be a workshop and Q&A session, not a speech, for those considering self-publishing. So please come prepared to ask plenty of questions, either general or pertaining to your own specific book project if you like.

For the first part of the workshop (about 20 minutes), Penn will introduce a one-page set of questions to help you consider your publishing options. Then the session will be opened up for Q&A and discussion.

For those seriously considering self-publishing, it is recommended you read Penn's book ahead of time, Self-Publishing from Japan: A Step-by-Step Guide. Penn established Forest River Press in 2003 and has self-published a dozen titles (both paperbacks and e-books) since then.
