With over 81% of Americans wanting to write a book, it would seem that everyone has a story to tell and the upcoming "Express YourselfÂ " Author's Conference might be just the place for them to get started. Hosted by local publisher, Infinity Publishing, the Express Yourself Conference (which runs September 30-October 2nd in Valley Forge) is a gathering of publishing experts, marketing professionals and every possible tool a writer could ever hope for to help them make the leap from writer to author.
"We created this event to not only support the authors we're currently working with, but to help educate writers who are out there trying to get their work noticed," says publishing visionary and CEO of Infinity Publishing Tom Gregory. "We've invited agents to help writers in their search for a publisher and marketing gurus to help authors get their book noticed."
Unpublished as well as published writers will spend the weekend in seminars, informal discussions and one-on-one consultations learning from experts about every aspect of marketing, promotion, publishing, and editing.
"Our conference is focused on helping authors be more successful in selling their books," says Tom Gregory, president of Infinity Publishing. "Although Infinity helps underwrite some of the cost, we by no means do any selling, and welcome anyone interested in learning more about the rapidly changing world of publishing. Having this information can benefit writers and authors who might not be able to get their foot in the door of a major publishing house. Our mission is to help writers and authors succeed with their books. It's really that simple."
Among Infinity's celebrity authors are Shandi Finnessey, Miss USA 2004, author of the children's book, "The Furrtails," and Terrence Daryl Shulman, author of "Something for Nothing: Shoplifting Addiction and Recovery," who was featured on "Oprah."
Says, "Express YourselfÂ " co-director John F. Harnish and an author himself, "Even though we do have some famous authors, everybody is very welcome. It's an exciting conference and you never know if the next John Grisham or Nora Roberts is just around the corner."
