Running across three days from 15th April to 17th April, IndieReCon 2015 will continue its goal of “making publishing a mission possible”.
The conference will feature a mix of online educational seminars, workshops, discussions and masterclasses. culminating in a reader-centred Indie Author Fringe Fest live from The London Book Fair’s Book and Screen Week, on Friday 17th April.

In line with ALLi’s mission to be a global organisation for authors everywhere, the event will be live streamed, so authors and readers who can’t be in London can take part online.
“IndieReCon was a highlight in the author-publishing calendar in 2014 and 2013,” said Orna Ross, ALLi founder and Director. “ALLi is delighted to work together with founders, S. R. Johannes and Ali Cross who did such an amazing job, to take it to the next level.”
The innovative conference, which promotes quality and craft in all aspects of indie publishing, will provide round-the-clock programming and utilise ALLi’s global network to ensure authors everywhere can access live sessions with the very best publishing industry insiders and author-publishers.
