Self Publishing Workshop

Bringing your words to life

3rd November, 2018 9.30am to 4.00pm
Mercure York  Fairfield Manor, York, YO30 1XW

This valuable interactive workshop invites first-time authors or those who’ve always wanted to write their own book, to come along and learn how to self-publish your work in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

Indie authors K. L. Shandwick and Ava Manello, who between them have self-published over forty titles across a range of genres covering both fact and fiction, will demystify the self-publishing journey.

Sharing their experiences, both good and bad, what worked and what didn’t, the workshop will touch on the writing and marketing processes before going into detail on how to transform your manuscript into both digital and print formats and make it available for sale internationally, without breaking the bank.
