Publishing talk: Getting you & your book noticed (for CancerResearchUK)

  • Jun 30, 2011 · 7:00 PM
  • Shooting Star pub

Expert speakers from the publishing industry will be coming to give short talks and answer burning questions during Q&A sessions for a fun-filled, but extremely informative event.

Special guests:

- Rebecca Swift of the The Literary Consultancy

- Nicola Morgan, best-selling YA author and new writers' bible 'Write to be published'

- Rebecca McEwan, Publicity Manager for Fourth Estate books (part of HarperCollins UK) 

- Rebecca Fenton, host of spoken word and writers' performance events for wordPLAY

Each guest will give a 10-15 minute talks, followed by focused Q&A sessions, about writing to be published and tips on how you can make your book stand out and be noticed. We will also have a session at the end for a general Q&A to guests in a panel format. 

Tickets are £8 but all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Cancer Research UK. I hope you will come and support the cause (as well as gaining some valuable tips, information and advice on your writing!)
