PUBLISHING and MARKETING - 4 x 2 hour workshops
Tutor Elaine Ouston
No matter what you have written, 200,000 word novel or a picture book, when most writers type ‘the end’ a feeling of satisfaction washes over them. They feel like they have completed a long and exciting journey, and so they should.
But what most writers don’t realise is that if they want their book to be chosen by a publishing house or to sell well as a self-published book, a whole new journey now begins, and unlike their writing journey this is one they have little control over.
These 4 x 2 hour workshops will cover your publishing options, how to write an effective synopsis and query letter, how to make your submission stand out, and marketing.
Even if you are published by a major publishing house, you will still need to do some marketing if you want to be a best seller. In the marketing course, we will cover the steps needed to make that marketing effective.
