On Sat. afternoon before our Ask the Experts Q&A, we were inspired by the inimitable Tim Brookes of the Endangered Alphabets Project and past director of the Champlain Publishing Initiative, and his collaborator Maung Nyeu of HGSE and founder of Our Golden Hour cultural preservation project. Maung has begun publishing children's books for this project.

Workshops & Panels
At IPNE, we believe wholeheartedly in the value of hands-on, practical knowledge transfer in a variety of formats targeting diverse learning styles. That's why we designed a smorgasbord of pithy interactive and hands-on sessions for you to choose from. Check the final schedule for changes and additions. Presentations will be made available shortly to conference registrants.
We were especially excited about this year's theme, "Collaboration Is the New Competition." Even though the Conference is past, continue to let us know: How do you collaborate to produce, publish, and market your books? What services or assistance would help you most? What talents and skills can you offer others?
