Welcome to the brand spanking, super shiny Self-Publishing Advice Conference website. Over the last three months, the #SelfPubCon website has undergone huge transformation. You'll see that it fits much closer design wise to the (also super shiny and new) selfpublishingadvice.org site – ALLi's main blog site.
Yes, it's that time of the year again! The Self-Publishing Advice Conference, #SelfPubCon, is running again on the 23rd & 24th of October 2021--and our theme this time is Writing Craft for Indie Authors.
Writing Craft for Indie Authors Conference
SelfPubCon hosts 24 world-class online self-publishing presentations and panels across 24 hours--so you can catch the live action wherever you are in the world.
But we don't expect you to stay up all night. The conference is freely open to all for 3 days, before going behind a paywall.
As you'll see if you hop across to the conference home page, we've an amazing array of speakers already lined up for you this year, offering interviews, webinars and presentations packed full of tips and advice to help you master your writing craft.
The conference runs in association with the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) and ALLi members receive a free six-month pass when the three-day free period expires. Non-members can purchase an access pass.
Several of our speakers are ALLi author and partner members, offering industry insight and professional expertise to help you improve your writing craft. We are delighted to have Amazon KDP as platinum sponsors this year, and Ingram Spark return again as our gold sponsors.
