Sponsor Discounts & Engagement

Besides, Kobo, there are multiple other sponsors to this fantastic day, each offering special discounts and opportunities for writers to engage with services for reduced or removed costs. Check out the Fringe page for more details on all of the sponsors.  You can even engage with the speakers and sponsors during and shortly after the event in the Hotseat Hangout – a virtual “booth” where you can mingle and interact with them.

Community & Connections Without The Cost

Every October, the publishing industry gathers together in Frankfurt, Germany. It’s one of the largest publishing events of the year, where deals happen, where rights get sold and were publishers and authors from around the world gather.

But why spend hundreds or thousands of dollars traveling to such an event when you can connect with and listen to publishing professionals and other successful international authors from the comfort of your own home? Yet another benefit brought the the author community from our friends at ALLI.
