THURSDAY WRITER RESOURCE DAY… is back!
Today’s installment for Thursday Writer Resource Day will concentrate on writing workshops and conferences. There are a few coming up that are awesome, ones you might think about attending if you have the time.
Thursday Writer Resource Day – the Publishing Industry
The great thing about writing workshops and conferences is that you meet so many amazing people–other writers, publishers, agents, independent editors, book packagers, bookstore owners, librarians, book distributors. And they all have their place in the very large industry of publishing. In 2017, the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis posted the publishing industry (including software) with gross sales of $243.1 billion. Publishing falls under the larger Retail Trade market, which combined earned $1,137 billion, making publishing approximately 1/5 of the entire retail market. So, as writers, we’re involved in the production cycle of an enormous industry.
So, it’s not unusual we will find tons of industry-related conferences and workshops specific to writing, publishing, and marketing. And, that’s what we’ll be discussing today for this posting of Thursday Writer Resource Day.
