So you've written that novel, memoir, or non-fiction book. You want to get it out to the world, but how do you do that? The world of publishing is going through rapid changes, and self-publishing doesn't have the stigma it once did.

This class is designed to help demystify the entire publishing process. You will learn the ins and outs of self-publishing, and ultimately you will end this course with a published e-book of your own writing. Even if you choose to go through a traditional publisher, knowing what your options are will make you a more savvy author.

Big Top Chautauqua Presents: Tent Show Radio

State Theatre, 316 Eau Claire Street, Eau Claire, WI 54701
'Culture Under Canvas' comes to Eau Claire as Tent Show Radio celebrates its 20th Anniversary with a special live performance of the show. The show features New York Times best selling author, humorist, songwriter, radio show host and amateur pig farmer, Michael Perry, along with Big Top Chautauqua's Blue Canvas Orchestra and special musical guests.
Since 1994 Tent Show Radio has been heard every week on 50-plus listener-supported radio stations across the United States and the world on the Internet. Each week's episode features a live performance recorded from Big Top Chautauqua's summer concert season along with a short monologue by Michael Perry from the 'backstage dressing room with the one-lonely-lightbulb'.
"Taking Tent Show Radio on the road has been a blast," says Perry. "It's a chance for folks who have maybe never made it to the tent to enjoy a taste of what's been going on up at Big Top Chautauqua for decades now. The live music, the stories, and the laughs combine for a straightforward, boots-on-the-ground good time. And as I like to say, it's always fun for us to meet listeners and say thank you right to their face. Plus I get to see if any of my new jokes work."
"Tent Show Radio Live on tour features all the elements of a live radio broadcast plus quite a bit more," says the radio show's Producer Tom Fabjance. "The show is packed with variety and a large 12 plus piece ensemble of performers and musicians. The show was well received last fall in Stoughton and Reedsburg and played to near capacity crowds and folks seem to be responding favorably."
