IWG Literary Lunch—The Business of Writing
Date/Time: Tuesday, August 20, 2013, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Location: Smoky Mountain Pizza, 415 East Parkcenter Boulevard, Boise
Program: What You Need to Know in the New Age of Publishing
Whether or not you plan to self-publish your next book (fiction or non-fiction), you should know about the changes in the publishing world, and how to decide the most prudent direction for your writing. Joanne Pence, a USA Today bestselling mystery writer, has also written historical fiction, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and dark contemporary fantasy.
Joanne has just returned from a week’s intensive master class on current trends in publishing and will be sharing some of the information she learned. Are you confused by Mobi vs. E-pub? CreateSpace vs. Lulu? “KDP Select” vs. everyone else? Hiring others vs. do-it-yourself book or e-book publishing? And if you want to hire others, what questions do you need to ask before you contract with them? Come to this month’s Literary Lunch and bring your questions as Joanne attempts to demystify the new world of publishing.
The Idaho Writers Guild meets the third Tuesday of every month. Network with writers and others in the literary community and get rejuvenated! The Literary Lunches are open to the public. The Idaho Writers Guild means writers working for writers.

Idaho Wine Country: A friendly collaboration
with Alan Minskoff and Paul Hosefros
The Place: Cole/Marr Coffeehouse
The Time: Saturday, August 11th from 1-3
Writing is a solitary activity unless you’re fortunate enough to have a good friend who shares your love of the subject matter. In this case, it happens to be wine. Alan Minskoff and Paul Hosefros combined their mutual curiosity about wineries and vineyards in Idaho to fashion the Idaho Wine Country book. Visually and literally, this collaborative effort reflects all that they learned during 15 months of interviewing and photographing more than 50 winemakers and grape growers. Now, Idaho writers can learn, firsthand, the joys and challenges of producing a book that calls on a writer’s wordsmithing and a camera man’s sensitivity to light and color.
Alan teaches journalism and writing at the College of Idaho. He was a longtime editor of Boise Magazine and editorial director of the Boise Journal and Art Idaho magazines. He teaches in the Cabin’s Summer Writing Camp, and is a widely published poet.
Paul is a retired New York Times senior photojournalist. His base in Washington DC allowed him to create memorable shots of political leaders. He graduated from BSU with an MFA in Creative Writing in 2007.
Come early, browse the gallery and grab a pastry or refreshing drink at the Cole/Marr counter.
The authors will graciously sign any books purchased during this event.
404 So. 8th St. Suite 154 (downstairs near Café Ole’)
