Bloomington Writer’s Festival and Book Fair

On Saturday I attended the 9th annual celebration of the the Literary Arts at the Bloomington Theatre and Art Center.  It was full of authors, writers, publishers and illustrators.  I attended 3 workshops, presented by Linda Anderson, Sarah Lien and Pamela Muldoon.  They were fabulous.  For authors, this event is not a great place to sell books.  I would recommend that authors should instead take advantage of the speakers and workshops.

    Thank you for the very nice mention in your blog post! The Bloomington Writer’s Festival is a great event and I am honored that asked me to participate as a presenter. So glad you could attend my Authors & Content Marketing workshop.
    I agree, this event’s strength are the presentations and learning an author can receive. Well priced and great content!
    Thanks again~

    • Great hearing from you, Pamela Muldoon, you are an exceptional speaker! You had great information! The event was very well organized and informative. As I was listening to you, I was thinking that all of the authors sitting at their tables should be in here right now listening to you! I think Bloomington Writer’s Festival could be marketed differently. The tables should just be supporters and resources for writers, some of which they had; i.e. publishers, cover art, publicists, editors etc., writing groups. The world of publishing is complex and the writers fair is a great resource for writers needing assistance in navigating their project and work.
