The Final Month Countdown to OWFI’s 50th Anniversary Conference Is Here!!!


Happy Tuesday, OWFI!

Can you believe we only have a week left of March?!! The final preparations for OWFI 2018 are in motion and I couldn’t be more excited, BUT before I get into that, I have an exciting reminder!!

Our next Virtual Workshop is in 2 Days!!!


Have you signed up? If not, head on over to and register!! This month’s virtual workshop will feature Clean Teen Publishing owner and cover designer, Marya Heidel. She’ll be telling you everything you need to know about books covers that sell in her talk titled:

How to Filter the Good from the Bad in Cover Design

MARCH 29, 2018
7 P.M. CDT

This presentation is designed to delve into the nitty-gritty of what goes into cover design and how you can make it work for you. Get industry knowledge in understanding what elements will work for sales and what requests won't. I'll cover everything from teaching you what makes a cover the perfect marketing tool as well as how to choose a cover designer to fit your project's requirements. Join us at 7pm on March 29th as we explore the world of book covers and give you the Dos and Don'ts of working with a graphic designer!
