I’m fascinated by the different roads writers travel to get to where they are today, and I enjoy hearing what has influenced people on their journeys. Come September, I’ll be giving a workshop and presentation at the York Festival of Writing on self-publishing, and I’d love to be able to present an international take on why writers in the WG2E community took the self-publishing leap!
To that end, it’d be fabulous if you could share with WG2E and my workshop participants:
- Why did you decide to self-publish (or why are you considering self-publishing)? Do you see it as an avenue to traditional publishing? Are you happy sticking with it for the foreseeable future?
- What do you find the biggest benefits to self-publishing?
- What are the biggest challenges?
- Anything else to add?
Feel free to answer one, none, or all! If you’re not comfortable with me sharing your response with festival participants, please let me know in the comments and I’ll respect your wishes.
I’ll get the ball rolling with my response below . . .
Thank you for your input as always, and have a great week!
