Stepping into Self-publishing (1): getting your book to Market
Fri 12 May 2017, 13:30 – 16:30 BST
Working on a writing project? Want to get your work out to the world?
Novel, memoir or non-fiction, don’t wait for someone else. Take control of your own publishing.
We show you how. Hear it from the people who’ve been there.
Who it’s for: writers with a completed manuscript (fiction or non-fiction) they want to publish, who would like guidance and information on self-publishing
In this three-hour workshop you as a participant will:
- identify the benefits/challenges of self-publishing vs trade (traditional) publishing
- learn the steps of the self-publishing process
- acquire knowledge of key resources for the self-publishing author
- gain an understanding of where to go next with your project
Includes a Q&A session with independent author and crime writer JJ Franklin (DI Matt Turrell series).
By the end of the workshop you will feel confident about taking the next self-publishing step for your work.
The workshop is interactive and includes group work, and one-to-one time with the tutor.
