Notre Dame to Host Northeast Ohio Literary Expo

Notre Dame College will host the 2012 Northeast Ohio Literary Expo from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 5.

Presented by Intelligent Consulting and Publishing, the Literary Expo is the premier event for Cleveland area authors, exhibitors, libraries, marketing professionals, graphic designers and book retailers, who want a chance to meet others who are literacy-minded. Its goal is to highlight the art of literacy, while encouraging youth to read, write and learn, as well as supporting local authors.

Participants have the opportunity to socialize with industry leaders and peers, visit various vendors and exhibitors, as well as attend informative workshops. The free event also offers a children-friendly environment featuring story time, a bounce house and writing activities. Workshops include:

  • The difference and benefits between self-publishing and traditional publishing
  • Using spoken word as a tool to enhance literacy in our youth
  • Professionalism and image tools for self published authors
  • Enhancing your sales as self-published author
  • Panel Discussion
  • Writing workshop for Children

The event’s key note speaker is local author and spoken word artist Basheer Jones.

Notre Dame College is located at 4545 College Road in South Euclid. For further information contact Wendy Peterson, at wpeterson@ndc.edu.
