Sheryn Hara, BPNW board member and co-founder of the current version of Northwest Bookfest, will be contacting scholarship recipients shortly. Each recipient will receive a full pass to all classes and workshops being held on Nov. 2 and 3 at Northwest Bookfest in Kirkland, WA.
Every year, Book Publishers Northwest provides a number of opportunities to members and interested others to learn more about the business of publishing.
For the public, BPNW hosts monthly meetings at the Good Shepherd Center in Seattle about topics of interest to small press publishers. These meetings take place from September to June and are free to attend unless otherwise indicated on the calendar.
For members, BPNW offers a number of scholarships and discounts to educational events as determined by the organizers of those events. In 2013, this has included one full scholarship to IBPA Pub U in Chicago, five full scholarships to Northwest Bookfest in Kirkland, discounted admittance to Seattle Book Summit, and discounted admittance to Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association’s Trade Show and education seminars in Portland.
If you are the organizer of an educational event that would be of interest to our members and would like to offer a scholarship or discount, please contact us at bpnwnews at aol.com. If you are interested in becoming a member of Book Publishers Northwest, click here.
