From the same team who organised the hugely informative day-conference – ‘How to Get Published’ [reported over on bookrambler] is this another one day conference- this time the focus is on self-publishing.
Speakers include Alison Baverstock [Sen. Publishing Lecturer & author of The Naked Author] and Sophie Rochester [Literary Platform]in a very full programme covering topical issues from where to start to choosing a digital platform and how to work with Amazon’s listings. What stands out for me, though, is the prominence given to editing. Where other digital conferences and talks focus on getting to that #1 spot, here, rightly, the focus is on quality.
I’d urge you to go along, if you can, published and beginning writers, as they really do think of everything and are warm, engaging and make sure everyone feels welcome. Good networking opportunities too [and the cakes are delicious!].
Date- 3 November 2012 – 9:30am-5:30pm
Place: Wellcome Centre, London [across the road from Euston Station]
