"This information you sent on self publishing was absolutely incredible...$40 - it's truly worth more than that...I did a thorough search of the internet and just couldn't find the answers [before taking this class] - and you answered questions I didn't even know to have, yet. It was amazing."

-Lisa Haynes
Founder of Dakota House Journal

Facilitator Bio
Kara L.C. Jones is a poet and artist living in the Seattle area. She has been widely published in literary journals all over the world. Because she would not submit her grief-writings about the loss of her son to an outside publisher, she and her husband Hawk started KotaPress in 1999 as an outreach to other grieving parents, as a place where verse is healing therapy, as a safe space for grieving through your art. She has been facilitating workshops for 7 years including Creative Writing, Poetry Workshop, Self Publishing Made Easy, Expanding Poetry, and BodyWrites!, all of which have been offered in various areas around the U.S. and in settings such as the Washington State Poets Conferences and MISS Foundation Passages Conferences.
