September 24: A one-day blitz of educational sessions, networking, and sales in Indianapolis. Are you excited? Let’s get ready!

The Conference

The morning will be a mini-conference full of helpful guidance through the world of self-publishing and marketing. A great lineup of sessions will be offered, with an additional time to network with qualified service vendors for art, cover design, editing, etc. Plus, sign up for a photoshoot with a professional photographer for an author headshot that will relate to readers and sell books!

Clean Indie Reads logoRegistration places are non-refundable after July 31 but with proper notice are transferable without fee to another attendee. So if you register and decide after the deadline that you cannot come after all, you can sell or give your registration to another person to use, just let us know to update our records!

We will be meeting in two buildings, the Franklin Road branch of the Indianapolis Public Library and another space directly across the street. This gives us more room and lets us maximize session time. The buildings are an easy walk from one to the other, but ample parking means you can drive if you’re in a hurry or want to save steps. (Google Maps presently has the pins a bit offset, correction pending, but the driveway entrances are directly opposite one another, just an easy street crossing!)

The cost to attend the mini-conference is just $25, and registration is open. Note additional fees apply to extra options, such as the professional photoshoot and book fair selling space.

We will be selecting and announcing additional sessions and speakers as submission progresses.


We need volunteers to help make this awesome. Volunteering can be helping authors find their tables for the fair, handing out name tags at check-in, setting up tables or chairs for sessions, or online/in-person promotions before the day of the event. Please consider completing the volunteer section on the registration form!
