  3. 3. Past challenges of publication <ul><li>Collation of written work was a mammoth task. </li></ul><ul><li>Publication involved organizing printing, collation, binding. </li></ul><ul><li>Distribution was time-intensive and involved collecting statistics (names/numbers) & money. </li></ul><ul><li>If you lost your copy or missed out, then there was no way to access the book/writing. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Present Possibilities <ul><li>Writing can occur online in open, collaborative environments </li></ul><ul><li>Peers can naturally read and peer edit </li></ul><ul><li>Students can find a real-world audience both online and in print </li></ul><ul><li>Collation of student writing can be centralized online in wikis </li></ul><ul><li>Ordering, printing & distribution of books can be completely outsourced </li></ul><ul><li>Books can be reprinted...and offered to wider audiences </li></ul>

  23. 27. What does it cost?
  24. 29. Keeping costs down <ul><li>Different types of books have minimum page requirements. Use the guidelines carefully </li></ul><ul><li>A self-published book will allow you to have more control over price </li></ul><ul><li>A book with a ‘distribution package’ (with an ISBN & the possibility for retail release) usually demands a higher price point </li></ul>
  25. 30. How is the layout done?
  26. 32. <ul><li>All lulu.com layouts are ‘distilled’ into Adobe PDFs </li></ul><ul><li>IF you’re an expert, then you can use leading desktop publishing software to create your layout. </li></ul><ul><li>IF NOT... </li></ul><ul><li>Download one of the templates BEFORE you start to edit and stick to it. </li></ul>TIP!
