FitCat Publishing’s president and head editor, Janiss Garza, will be one of the speakers at the 14th annual DIY Convention on March 7. She will be appearing on the panel, “Not Fade Away: Being Older in a Young Person’s Business,” talking about recreating oneself, staying fresh, and finding new niches… which is exactly what she is doing with her indie publishing company.
The panel begins 1 PM, and like the other DIY panels that day, will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel, 7000 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90028. Admission to the panels is free.
The DIY Convention is part of JM Northern Media LLC, which focuses on books, film and music. In addition to the annual convention, it hosts book and film festivals, and many other events. FitCat Publishing’s first book, Dear Sparkle: Advice From One Cat to Another, was one of the winners at the company’s Hollywood Book Festival in 2007.
