Did you know that The Zharmae Publishing Press can come to you to present a talk or panel?
Shannon St. Hillaire composed this write-up after a recent talk for a writing group in Spokane…
A while back, some fellow editors, the publisher, and I had the opportunity to talk with the Inland Northwest Writer’s Guild at their monthly meeting at Auntie’s Bookstore in downtown Spokane. We presented our company, along with its new imprints, to a plethora of writers. We were thrilled with the turnout and met some great writers, some of whom we hope to publish!
After working from a virtual office all day, it was great to get out and meet the wonderful talent in person. The other editors and I left with a healthy handful of submissions and the glow of having met the kind, earnest, and talented writing community here in Spokane. That is what Zharmae is about: finding talented writers who write for the pure joy of it, without the expectation of being discovered…until we discover them!
The group had plenty of questions to ask: about marketing, payment, distribution, different forms of publication, and more. If you have any such questions, let the Q&A continue via internet!
Many thanks to Linda Bond, coordinator of the Guild, for welcoming us into the group. We are thrilled to be a part of this wonderful community.
If you have a writing or book club, we would love to join up with you and your members. Check in with us—we have editors in various cities along the West Coast and dotted across the US who would be happy to make a presentation to your group.
It is a fantastic experience for everyone to meet in person and exchange the energy between writing and business that is essential for this industry. We hope to hear from you!
