... haven't been to enough comics events in Seattle lately, I'm participating in this at Hugo House tonight: 

The Hugo House InPrint Series presents:
 
Why Publish With an Independent or Small Press?
An Evening with Northwest Independent Press Publishers
 
Tuesday, April 15th, 2008, 7:00 - 9:00
                            Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave. Seattle
Admission $3 members/$5 non-members
 
Why Publish With an Independent or Small Press?
 
The Northwest features a handful of excellent independent press publishers who are producing interesting work and attracting positive critical attention and awards. 

Tonight editors and publishers from several publishers will be on hand to explain the advantages of publishing with an independent small press and how to go about it.  Our speakers will cover the editing and business side of small press, from queries and pitches to editorial preferences and distribution. 
 
Small press publishers can serve audiences that aren't normally served by larger publishers who can only publish very commercial work, allowing them to get away from publishing only work that appeals to the largest common denominator of readers.  Once books have been published and received positive reviews, they often attract the attention of larger publishers for broader distribution.  All of your questions will be answered and you'll come away with valuable information and contacts for publishing.
