Do you have a service or product that can help local authors achieve their goals? The 2013 Northwest BookFest is looking for highly dynamic presenters for this year's writer's conference.

Authors, publishers, editors, booksellers, librarians, publicists, and bibliophiles in general will be treated to a jam-packed weekend of workshops, panel discussions, classes, and readings.

 This year's event will feature dozens of author appearances and book signings in every genre from children's books to espionage thrillers.

 We will have time slots for 60 workshops, panels and presentations on all aspects of writing and publishing. Presenters will include:

Presentations will include utilizing new technologies within the publishing industry such as: social media, digital publishing and other key factors that are influencing our new digital publishing revolution.
