Writer’s Digest has been serving writers for over 90 years. Primarily a monthly publication (also called “Writer’s Digest”) the magazine provides authors and publishers at all stages of the process with advice, tools, and opportunities to advance their writing and achieve their goals. Each year, Writer’s Digest hosts an annual conference to bring together authors, publishers, and all other professionals involved in the writing and publishing process.
In our continued efforts to support authors and help provide our services to as many as we can, Lulu sponsored and attended the conference again this year. Our contingent of Lulu team members had a great time working the booth at the exhibition and talking with all of the authors in attendance. We also had the opportunity to attend the sessions and panel discussions, and even participated in one of the panels!
Events like the Writer’s Digest Conference (our favorite, BTW) are a great way for authors and publishers to connect and learn more about the ever-changing world of publishing. It is also a terrific place for self-publishing and print facilitators like Lulu to inform authors of the tools available to them. Likewise, we’re able to get feedback from authors about what is working, what is not working, and what they feel they need to be successful in the future.
