About the Conference
The publishing industry is set on a shifting landscape. Ooligan Press is a unique book publisher in this ever-changing environment, as it is housed within Portland State University’s master’s in book publishing program. At Ooligan, our students are the future of the publishing industry and will be the innovators who adapt to changes in the field. However, innovation must come from a well-informed place.
That is why every year we host the Write to Publish conference, a one-day event dedicated to publishing in all its forms. Our goal with this conference is to take a snapshot of the industry as it is now and to bring together current industry professionals and publishing students to exchange knowledge and spark moments of innovation. This year’s conference theme will be “The Many Faces of Publishing,” as we hope to highlight the diverse publishing options that are now available to writers.
This year our keynote speaker is Dana Trocker, director of marketing at Atria Books, which is a division of Simon & Schuster.
Write to Publish will take place on January 11, 2020, at the Smith Memorial Student Union on the Portland State University campus.
Smith Memorial Student Union is located near Parking Structure 1 on the Portland State campus. Visitor parking rates range from an hourly rate of $4.00 to a full-day weekend rate of $7.00.
