WordFire Writer's Conference

Status: New Idea!
by lexi-trek on ‎02-23-2014 04:47

Hey Lulu. I love your site, and have purchased a few poetry books from you that were as fantastic as the authors who created them, truly! I think your team is briliant, and that your site is most likely the future of publishing.

My name is David Puerner, I'm a student currently attending Butte College (An ambitious JC in Northern California). I'm sorry for contacting you this way, but I couldn't find another way to get a hold of the lulu team. Anyway, Butte puts on a Writer's conference every spring, another WordFire will be held this April, and I was hoping you might want to send sombody out to our college to give a talk on self publishing thorugh lulu.

I think it would be a great oppertunity for you to garner some more interest in the north state, and guess what? A lot of us up here just finished Nanowrmo this last semester and maybe could use some of your guidence to figure out what the next step might be.

The way our conference is set up, presenters are given a one-hour time slot to educate their audience about whatever element of writing they've decided to bring to the table, but I want you to be there. I'd love it if lulu were there offereing a 1-hour workshop on self publishing, and maybe even bringing some tech so that you can get people to sign up for lulu during your presentation.

We offer this conference every semester, and while I'd love you to be a part of 2014's conference, this is something you could do in 2015 as well.

I'd love to hear back from you.

Thank you for reading, and please give my proposal some thought!
