The past few years have seen profound change in the publishing industry. With these challenging realities emerged the first real face of independent publishing. For the first time ever self-publishing became a viable means for a significant number of artists, both known and unknown, and in many cases became the "first-choice" option. This workshop will speak to these new freedoms and how best to utilize the ever-evolving Blurb publishing platform. Attendees will learn about new Blurb offerings, the range of available publishing tools, see examples of "atypical" books and have a chance to make decisions about their own personal publication. Dan Milnor, Blurb Creative Evangelist and chronic bookmaker, will cover topics such as utilizing more than one format, collaboration, best use of magazine, serial publishing, themed books and how to best communicate with an audience interested in supporting the independent publisher.
