“Behind the Scenes: Small Press Publishing”

Presented by Luke Hankins

Luke Hankins

There is a lot more to publishing a book than many writers realize! Join Orison Books founder and editor Luke Hankins for a discussion of the publication process from the publisher's perspective, from reading submissions and manuscript acquisition, to the editorial process, to book design, to printing and distribution, to marketing—and the author's role in each of these steps. Luke will include recommendations for authors seeking publication or with books already under contract.

Luke Hankins is the author of a collection of poems, Weak Devotions, and a collection of essays, The Work of Creation. He is also the editor of Poems of Devotion: An Anthology of Recent Poets. His latest book is a collection of translations from the French of Stella Vinitchi Radulescu, A Cry in the Snow & Other Poems, recently released in an international edition by Seagull Books. Hankins is the founder and editor of Orison Books, a non-profit literary press focused on the life of the spirit from a broad and inclusive range of perspectives.
