“Set Sail into Publishing: Charting a Course for Your Writing Career” with Guy Salvidge
So your novel, play or book of poetry is written and raring to go – where to next? Should you send your manuscript to the traditional publishers, most of which are located in Melbourne and Sydney? (If they even accept unsolicited manuscripts, that is.) Maybe you could try your hand at major literary awards like The Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award or the T.A.G. Hungerford Award? Should you opt for a smaller print-on-demand publisher? What are the benefits and drawbacks of this form of publication? Maybe you should go it alone with self-publishing, or perhaps you could become part of the digital revolution and forego print publication altogether? Maybe you should consider a Manuscript Assessment or Mentorship first?
All of these options and more will be discussed in “Set Sail into Publishing: Charting a Course for Your Writing Career” with WA writer Guy Salvidge. Participants will navigate the treacherous waters of modern publishing and chart a course forward for themselves and their creative work.
