Express Media Independent Publishing Workshop with Lisa Dempster
Independent Publishing is a workshop about the world of independent and small press publishing. In the workshop you will learn how to get involved, what it takes to set up your own press, planning what to publish, where to sell your publications and pitfalls to avoid.
Cost: $22 for E(x)_m members or $25 for non-members.

Talking about independant publishing...

I just came across this really neat website called Locus, a melbourne based collaboration between aduki independent press and Vignette Press. Check it, there is lots of discussion and dialogue about what is happening and what could be happening in our local indep publishing scene.
"Locus believes in independent publishing, sustainability in the publishing and media industries, and above all, books and magazines that are interesting, diverse and distinctive."
