Georgetown Indie Con REGISTER NOW!
Where indie books are born and indie writers thrive.
June 8 – 10, 2018 in Georgetown Colorado
Georgetown Indie Con (GEOCON) is an independent writer’s conference that takes place in the Rocky Mountain National Historic Landmark District town of Georgetown, Colorado. Helping independent authors successfully publish is our goal. Connect with and learn from successful authors and industry professionals in an intimate environment. GEOCON is a partnership between the Georgetown Cultural Arts Program (GCAP) and Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA).
About one million new titles are published every year, and somewhere in the area of two-thirds of them are self-published. Those are daunting numbers for writers who have dreams of getting their own book in print. The big publishing houses seem reluctant to take a chance on an unknow author these days, and not only do many of those houses no longer edit the books they publish, most of them expect the author to play a big role in marketing their books. Because of these challenges, many writers turn to self-publishing.
But self-publishing has its own challenges, and most writers are desperate for help when it comes to the craft of writing, getting their work professionally edited and designed, figuring out the confusing world of printing and e-books, and then becoming skilled at marketing and selling their works. And that is where writing/publishing conferences can help.
Georgetown Indie-Con is a great place to find your writers community, hone your craft, learn from others and share your own experiences as a writer/indie writer.
