April Third Thursday: “Doing It Yourself: The Self-Publishing Experience”

April 21, 2022 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM CDT

  • This event has passed.
WLT hosts Third Thursday each month, featuring discussions focusing on specific topics of interest to writers and readers, bringing together distinguished panelists for conversations moderated by a WLT staff member.

The path to publication looks different for everyone. In April, we want to take some time to dive into the self-publishing experience. Join us as we hear from three authors on why they chose to self-publish, why and how it’s worked for them, and more.

Dr. Davis is also the founder of the East of the River Book Festival, an event that highlights authors of diverse self-published books in Washington, DC.
Jacob Grovey is a Texas-based author of twelve books, including multiple novels, collections of poetry, and several children's books. His love for writing started while he was in elementary school and his teacher challenged the class to create a poem. From that point, writing has remained near and dear to him. In each book, he strives to create entertaining stories with relatable characters who inspire the reader. You can learn more by visiting Jacob Grovey.com
