The event creator says
Of special interest to writers hoping to or about to publish a first book. We’ll discuss the happy but often bewildering aftermath of acceptance: book design, publicity, the vulnerability of being newly published, post-publication contests, and second and beyond books. Room 101 H&I, Level 1. With Douglas Bauer, Kristin Bock, Karen Skolfield, and Ayshia Stephenson.

Moderator: Karen Skolfield’s book Frost in the Low Areas (Zone 3 Press) won the 2014 PEN New England Award in poetry. She is a Massachusetts Cultural Council fellow and an editor at Sundress Publications. Skolfield teaches writing to engineers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Kristin Bock teaches in the Business Communication Program at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She is the author of Cloisters, winner of Tupelo Press’s First Book Award and the da Vinci Eye Award for book design.

Douglas Bauer has written three novels, including The Book of Famous Iowans, and three books of nonfiction, most recently What Happens Next?: Matters of Life and Death, which won the 2014 PEN/New England Book Award. He has edited two anthologies and teaches literature at Bennington College.

Ayshia Stephenson is an award-winning poet and executive director of Performing Fusion Theatre. With an MFA in writing and an MA in sociology, Ayshia uses poetry for a provocative look at culture and gender. She is published by Imaginary Friend Press, Boston University, and Open to Interpretation.
