Publishing 101 – Deb Haggerty

Understanding the publishing process is important not only for authors but for editors as well. During this workshop, Deb Haggerty will discuss the traditional publishing process in general, and the Elk Lake model specifically. The documentation sent to authors upon contract and to ELPI editors will be available as handouts and will be discussed. This is an interactive seminar with questions and discussion actively encouraged. Participants will (1) review the traditional publishing operation and procedures in general, (2) learn about Elk Lake Publishing’s specific procedures, (3) receive documents/resources given to authors and editors and learn why they’re important, and (4) understand why editor training is so critical to a publisher’s success.
