The Author School: GETTING AHEAD OF THE PUBLISHING GAME 2017
Mon 22 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
If your New Year’s Resolution is to publish your book OR sell more copies of the book you have out there already, then we have exciting news!
The Author School is proud to launch a series of regular, evening workshops for authors to join us after work – including those who have yet to be published – to get to grips with the publishing industry, and learn the tips and tricks of building an author platform, growing your audience and selling books.
Starting on January 23rd, and taking place every month in The Calder Book Shop & Theatre, 51 The Cut, London SE1 8LF, from 6.30-8.30pm, at an early bird price of £25, you can join us for one evening, or all of the workshops, to get the support and strategies you need to become a more successful author in 2017.
The Author School Evening Workshops will focus on a wide range of topics including:
Choose the best publishing route for you and your book – there are so many options out there now is the time to be an author! We can help you navigate the publishing industry and avoid the cowboys.
How to pitch to literary agents, what they do, how it works and do you need one?
Learn how to build and grow your author platform – online and offline. From social media to blogging, the importance of an author website to getting out there and networking at events.
Be inspired by successful PR strategies implemented by the team at Literally PR for hundreds of authors…learn what works (and what doesn’t) and take home tools that will help you promote your book and build your profile.
Branding, cover design, achieving your ‘look’ – the role of the author is bigger than ever before. You need to be in charge of building your own brand, particularly if you’re a non-fiction author, and we can help.
Book before January 6th and authors will get a FREE Digital Audit (http://www.theauthorschool.com/digital-audit/) and 10% off our next Author School Day on March 13th/ September 25th (Citizen M, Bankside, London)
