We’ve got our next digital publishing seminar slated for late January. But you don’t have to wait that long to learn from us. This month, there are two events where we’ll be presenting on various aspects of digital publishing. We think that both of these events make a lot of sense for authors to attend, even beyond what you’ll learn from us.
Podcamp AZ | November 12th – 13th
Podcamp AZ bills itself as a Relevant Media Unconference. It’s free to attend. And you should go.
It’s put on by volunteers (full disclosure: I was one of those volunteers the first three years) and caters to the DIY aspect of creating, producing and releasing media in many sorts. While the conference isn’t specifically about publishing, the skills discussed will be very relevant to any author trying to take control in the world of digital publishing.
ePublish Unum is a sponsor of Podcamp AZ. If you attend, you can signup to win a prize-pack of some free 1-on-1 consulting time from us. Jeff is going to talk specifically about digital publishing, and I’ll be working it into the conversation of all the sessions I’m leading. Register here.
SMAZ | November 18th
SMAZ, or Social Media Arizona, is a business-focused event. And if you’re not treating your life as a digital author as a business, you’re doing it wrong. You’ll learn from and mingle with business people in the valley who are much more than hobbyists when it comes to promoting and interacting. No, this isn’t a digital publishing conference. But business-minded authors will find the event invaluable.
ePublish Unum is a sponsor of SMAZ, and Jeff and I will be presenting on the business-side of being a digital author these days. Register before November 1st and you’ll get a hefty discount.
As a digital author, it’s important for you to get outside of your comfort zone and learn from lots of people. Sure, attending conferences, workshops and seminars specifically about digital publishing is important. But sometimes you learn the most when you get less specific. Both Podcamp AZ and SMAZ are smart events with plenty to teach you and others.
Go. You can thank me later.
