Programs

Metadata Program

Throughout the year Washington Publishers (WP) sponsors about half a dozen evening programs, plus occasional brown-bag lunch discussions and tours. WP also holds a holiday party and book gift exchange in December and a ceremony and reception to announce and honor winners of each year’s Book Design & Effectiveness Awards.



Audiobook Know-How

RSVP here

In June, the Audio Publishers Association reported double-digit gains for audiobook sales. They also reported healthy growth in both the number of audiobook listeners and titles available. It’s a rapidly growing market but not one that many people are familiar with. Please join Washington Publishers on November 1 for our next event, Audiobook Know-How. We’ll be joined by Robin Sullivan, business manager for author Michael J. Sullivan, who will present an overview of the audiobook market, how to produce an audiobook, and the various options for distribution. Whether you’re an editor or self-published author, or in a marketing or production department, this is an event you won’t want to miss!
