How to Make the Literary Industry Work for You: a Self-Publishing Workshop with Tyler Dunning
Oct
17
to Oct 26

How to Make the Literary Industry Work for You: a Self-Publishing Workshop with Tyler Dunning

Four nights, 7-9pm, in Thunderhead's Studio, Suite 204, Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture

October 17th, 19th, 24th, and 26th (Tuesday and Thursday nights)

$150

*8 participants

Sign up: info@thunderheadwriterscollective.com

Writing is entertainment and, as such, it exists in an industry predicated upon business deals, marketing, public relations, and social prowess. Tyler’s four-part course is designed to educate writers on a holistic approach to their careers: how long-term goals dictate trajectory; how social media and platform drive an active readership; how networking and professional relationships become blocks upon which to build a supportive community.

This course will also focus on how to make the literary industry work for you. The limited number of participants in this class ensures that each person receives adequate attention in regard to developing a business plan, a social media platform, and setting attainable goals that will propel both creativity and commerce. The intention is to leave each participant with pragmatic logistics that will better serve their writing while navigating the entertainment industry.

Tyler Dunning learned DIY practices that led him to independent publishing, mixed media collaboration, an international TEDx Talk, and storytelling tours around the world. He is the author of A Field Guide to Losing Your Friends and an ally to anyone earnestly pursuing art.

Launching with the motto "A film lover's block party celebrating great films and filmmakers,” the first Port Townsend Film Festival launched on September 22, 2000. We closed off Taylor Street and brought in hay bale seating for an evening of free outdoor movies, opened three indoor movie venues, and screened 24 documentary, feature, and short films over three days and nights.

Moving forward 17 years, we now screen more than 90 films in seven venues! It’s completely walkable, includes a big outdoor dinner for passholders, Q&A and panel discussions with filmmakers, and great parties. We still invite the community to fill Taylor Street on three evenings, for the free outdoor movies, and offer free films day and night in the Peter Simpson Free Cinema.

"A Field Guide to Losing Your Friends" will be shown at the following times:

Friday, September 15 at 9:30 am at the Key City Theatre.

Saturday, September 16 at 6:15 pm at the Rose Theatre.
