Also, ASI will sponsor the “Opening Gala” ceremony the evening of February 16, where authors will have the opportunity to meet fellow attendees, including notable published authors, screenwriters, film producers, and representatives from leading literary agencies and publishing companies.
“The San Francisco Writers Conference is one of the most prestigious events in the publishing industry, and we were very happy to once again partner with them,” said Keith Ogorek, senior vice president of marketing at Author Solutions, Inc., and a speaker at the event. Along with Ogorek, there will be many representatives from ASI in attendance to answer questions and discuss the advantages of self-publishing.
