Aimed at new and emerging writers, as well as more established writers wanting to embrace the digital age, this one-day conference will explore trends in publishing, identify new markets for writing and support authors to make connections with each other and with industry experts.
In 2015, there are more opportunities and challenges for writers than ever before. The publishing industry is changing and the writers who get ahead are those who make the most of the possibilities available to them. The 'Do it Yourself' ethos invites you to navigate the new rules (while remembering that many of the old rules still apply). From using digital platforms to engage with readers, to exploring non-traditional publishing routes, to identifying what today’s editors look for, this conference is all about what you can do for yourself to advance your writing career.
