Join the Midwest Independent Publishers Association for "Figuring Out Funding: Finances of Book Publishing" with Nayt Rundquist on Tuesday, March 10, 2020.

From the MIPA website:

Understanding the costs and potential revenue streams of a publishing venture is integral to avoid bankrupting yourself before you get started.

You’ve got your book written, re-written, edited, and proofread. It’s finally ready to see the light of day. But how do you fund bringing your book into the world? Where does the money come from, and where does it go? This talk will discuss models for seeking revenue for a project and pricing production of your work.

Book production, marketing, submitting to awards, applying to sell at festivals, even setting up readings can cost money. Our guest, Nayt Rundquist, will cover the costs of publishing a book, like production, printing, and advertising. We will also look into potential revenue streams for your projects, including applying for grants, crowdfunding models, and selling at readings and other events. Rundquist will also discuss distribution options and how booksellers select what to sell.


Speaker Details

Nayt Rundquist is managing editor at New Rivers Press, as well as being an editor, publisher, educator, and writer (in no particular order). He teaches publishing and writing courses at Minnesota State University Moorhead, serves as guest judge for writing competitions, and writes his own speculative fiction. In addition, Nayt is the treasurer for the Midwest Independent Publishers Association.
