SpectrumPublishing.Org comes to Marshall

Western North Carolina and Madison County have a new publishing company located in downtown Marshall. SpectrumPublishing.Org is a not-for-profit firm specializing in helping authors publish their work. This October, Spectrum will hold an eight session creative writers' workshop in Marshall and is open to authors of all levels.

There's a new company in downtown these days and its name is SpectrumPublishing.Org. Besides documenting and publishing Appalachian history for the last 30 years, their aim is to help new authors by providing them with the training, consultation and ultimately, the publication of their work.

This Fall the team will conduct an extensive workshop, for aspiring authors of creative nonfiction, concentrating on the accurate depiction of history in the area of the French Broad River Valley. 'Historical Fiction' is the process by which actual history (culture, actual persons, places, language, incidents, etc.) is chronologically organized and then fictional tales are spun around those sets of facts. Cold Mountain by Charles Fraser is just one such example of historical fiction.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 6 participants so as to provide concise attention to each person's abilities and desires. The course begins on October 29th, 2010 and concludes on January 4th, 2011. Each participant will create a short story (20 pages) about a subject relevant to life in the French Broad River Valley during the Frontier period of Westerly migration of Germans and Scots-Irish. These tales will then be combined, after editing by Spectrum at no charge, into an e-book available for the Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble's Nook, and Apple's iPad, from which the authors will share in the profits.

More information on the workshop may be found on their website http://SpectrumPublishing.org. Spectrum's long range plans are to employ upwards of 12 talented, creative local artisans; i.e. mentors, editors, book assembly, and illustrators. For those interested in participating in the exciting environment of publishing and wishes to submit one's resume, please contact them directly.
