Calling All Local Authors!
Farmington Public Library’s #ReadFourCorners Author Fair
Saturday, March 16 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm
You’ve accomplished your life’s dream: you’ve published a book! Of course you want to tell others about it. Apply to our local author fair and let us help you market your work. These local events are an amazing way to promote your book, talk with other local writers, and learn more about the publishing process.
Here’s what you need to know:
Authors interested in presenting must fill out an application and be accepted by our staff to participate.
Space is limited to 15 authors, so unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate every applicant.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Priority will be given to early applicants and San Juan County residents.
Qualities such as genre, publication date, and format will also be considered. Newer works in print are preferred, and we want to feature a variety of genres to appeal to all different types of readers.
Authors must present at least one published work at the fair. Works can be self-published, published by small presses, or traditionally published.
Each selected author will be provided a 60 x 18 inch table to show their works.
Selected authors are more than welcome to sell their works, but they must provide their own means of check-out and payment (i.e. Square and cash apps, cash bags). Wi-Fi is available for everyone who has a library card in good standing.
All decisions by the selection committee are final.
You’ve done the hard work: writing, editing, and publishing your book. Now fill out our easy application to show off your work. Submit your application by Monday, February 11 to be considered. All applicants will be contacted by Friday, February 15 on the status of their application.
(A Gmail account is required to access the application.)
If you have any further questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re so excited to host this event, and we hope you’ll be able to join us!
