You recently did a show about independent filmmaking in Oregon that was fascinating. Might I suggest that you do a show about independent publishing in Oregon.
I am a self-published writer of a book of novella and three books of poems. After years of being told that my writing didn't have a market and being rejected, I took a different direction and published my work myself.
This was a truly liberating experience and it is indicative of the true independent spirit that we as Oregonians have. It's an important message for would be writers to give them other avenues to share their craft.
Since then, I've adapted my first self published book into a screenplay and filmed it into a full feature length film this past summer in Portland.
I would love to either participate in or hear a program about other self published authors and their experience with the process.
