The Road to Publication: Self-publishing versus Traditional Publishing

A Coffs Harbour Writers’ Group workshop facilitated by local author, Rosalie Skinner

Calling all those writers out there who aspire to see their work in print on a shelf, or maybe up on line, e-publishing, or both? Do writers need a traditional publishing contract or can they do it themselves? Can they go it alone or do they need an editor, an agent, a marketer, a distributor and their own extensive resources?

In this digital age self-publishing has never been easier and many mainstream authors started by self-publishing, but there can be traps for the inexperienced.

In this workshop, Rosalie Skinner and a panel of experienced local published authors and editors, look at the advantages of both types of publishing and discuss using agents, editors, publishers, making submissions, promotion, media networking and marketing. They will answer your queries and explore a range of options for individual situations.

It’s a not-to-be-missed opportunity to gain insight into the world of publishing for authors of all genres, both fiction and non-fiction.
