Upcoming Events


Self-Publishing Workshop Part 1

West Florida Literary Federation invites you to a free webinar, Self-Publishing, presented by Tom Roberts, and scheduled for January 26 at 7:00 pm. The webinar will be hosted on Zoom. In the first part of this multi-part workshop, Tom—a self-published author of two books—will provide an overview of the contemporary self-publishing process. Subsequent workshops will dive into the details of each step of the self-publishing process, from pre-publication planning in your particular writing niche to final production to marketing fundamentals. Future workshops will cost $5 for members and $10 for non-members, with all proceeds going to WFLF.

Pre-registration is required. Check your email for your invitation or send a request to [email protected] and we'll get you an invite. We hope you join us for this and many workshops coming from WFLF in 2021!
