“Literary Writers and Self-Publishing: The Final Frontier?”

Presented by Tina Boscha

Upon receiving the 2006 Leslie Bradshaw Fellowship from Oregon Literary Arts, Tina Boscha learned that 2 out of every 3 Fellowship recipients went on to become successfully published writers. She thought that boded well for her and her novel, River in the Sea, until the point when it became clear that despite some close calls, her novel was not going to sell. Her agent urged her to put the manuscript aside and move on, but instead she chose to put the book out herself. (See this book review from Portland Book Review.)

During her talk, Boscha will discuss her decision to self-publish, how she went about it, and what she believes is the future for literary writers in this transitioning and new era of publishing. She will also read briefly from her work.
