BookNet Fest is an upcoming event to celebrate the online book community. Our aim is to unite all members of the book community, from creators to readers, with no restrictions due to platform, platform size, or most-read genre.
Throughout the day we will be discussing important topics in our community such as diversity in publishing and the book community, writing (from beginning a manuscript to getting published), critically reviewing, reviewers' place in the book industry, and more. BookNet Fest is also at its core a networking event, bringing online friends, creators, and audiences together in one place.
You can view our amazing list of panelists, with new panelists being announced every week leading up to the event: http://booknetfest.com/speakers/

In addition, we wanted to ensure that diversity was at the heart and soul of our event. As such, our panelists come from a variety of backgrounds, races, sexualities, genders, and platform sizes. Supporting BookNet Fest ensures that everyone has a voice in our community.
We've had a number of lovely sponsors support BookNet Fest already, but we still have operational costs that aren't covered. We need to raise funds for audio/video equipment and venue rental. We know that with your help, we can meet this goal.
BookNet Fest is a completely non-profit event. All money raised will be going exclusively to event costs.
If you support our mission of uniting the online book community, giving a voice to those that haven't had one in the past, and bringing book lovers together to discuss all things books, please consider donating to BookNet Fest.
Thank you, and we hope to see you in Orlando for BookNet Fest!
