My next speaking engagement is later this month in Brisbane. I will be joining host author Michelle Worthington and other incredibly talented writers to speak about the Publication Process.
Aimed at for aspiring authors, we'll be discussing the reality of publishing and how it is influenced by current industry trends. We'll be discussing what publishers want, how to pitch to publishers and how to market yourself as an author.
The journey towards publication is different for everyone so we'll all be sharing our tips, trials and triumphs (of which there are many) in a series of talks and Q&A panels in the half day workshop on October 29.
If you have written a story that you are trying to get published, it's also a great opportunity to share your story during a 'perfect your pitch' open mic session to get honest feedback from industry professionals. Bookings for the open mic session are required when RSVPing. Make sure you secure your spot because it's always a popular inclusion and time is limited. Unlimited Tea and coffee will be included workshop price.
