Get Ready for THATCamp Publishing!

We are a month away from THATCamp Publishing and applications are continuing to roll in — especially since the word is out that we have both free registration and free food!

Once your registration is confirmed then start thinking about what you’d like to talk about. Since this is an unconference, attendees will propose and determine all the sessions (see our About Page for more on unconferences).

Session proposals will be posted on this site over the next few weeks and you can second or extend an idea in the comments. We will finalize the schedule in person first thing in the morning on June 19.

What should you propose? You might start by thinking about a professional problem you are having related to publishing and pose a session to get help with that problem. And if you have a new idea or see a big opportunity, then propose a topic of conversation to find colleagues and collaborators.

At the 2011 THATCamp Publishing we talked about the big picture, like the Digital Future of the Heavily Illustrated Book and what would you need if you found yourself on a desert island and needed to start a scholarly press? We didn’t ignore the details, though, with sessions such as what’s your digital text workflow?

Take a look at our Proposing a Session page for instructions and then start a conversation. What do you want to talk about?
