Do you need a course on ePublishing?
In 2013, Duke Street Community House hopes to trial a course for those who wish to learn how to publish their work electronically and to take advantage of the opportunities the internet can provide for writers in promoting and marketing their own projects. Both Craig and Dale have published on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform and have used tools (such as Mobipocket software) to create their own ebooks for a range of readers (Kindle, Kobo, etc) and devices (PCs, mobile phones, tablets)
Craig and Dale will talk about their own experiences as learners and independent publishers. They will also discuss their plans and share an outline of how they might proceed with translating their knowledge and experience into a course that will serve the purposes of those who want to create ebooks, use print on demand services and use social media and the web to promote themselves and their works.
Craig Nelson spent 35 years as a business professional in manufacturing, corporate, retail and IT sales in the United States. He moved to Australia in 2007 and wrote his first Sci Fi novel which he initially self published electronically on Amazon in May, 2012. He is in the process of developing two new writing projects which he will self-publish at completion. Apart from his creative writing work, Craig teaches Social and Multi-Media and a range of other IT classes at Duke Street.
Dale Pobega is Education Manager at Duke Street Community House and has worked in the area of E-learning for twenty years. In the past he has successfully managed a TAFE based online learning network and is well known for his work using new learning technologies and techniques with ESL and CALD learners. Apart from teaching, Dale has a background in writing, editing and publishing. He has written and published two books electronically.
