The Write Room Press, a local independent and non-fiction publishing press will launch its first title this Saturday, May 9, at 4:00 p.m. at the YWCA Hotel downtown Vancouver.

Vancouver resident Jill Schroder is the author of the Write Room Press’ first title, Becoming. John Davis, Professor at Naropa University says, 
”This book gleans nuggets from many teachings and makes them personally accessible. This is benefit enough to recommend it. More than this, though, it invites us into our own experiences. And after all, it is here – in the intimacy of our own experience – that these stories come true and unfold. These stories are doorways, opening us to our own journeys. This is a book to read over and over.”

The book launch will feature speakers, readings by the author, book signing, and ample opportunity to speak with the author as well as Press representatives. The event is free and open to the public. Becoming is available at Vancouver’s independent bookstore Duthie Books, and online at http://www.thewriteroom.net/newtitles.html.

An offshoot of a writing and editing company, the Write Room, the Write Room Press publishes non-fiction and academic manuscripts for specialized audiences, as well as manuscripts that challenge popular norms or ideas. In short, the new independent publisher publishes works that may not be interesting or profitable enough for large corporate publishers.
