The Business of Self-Publishing Workshops and Young Writers in the City of Glenorchy Residency Opportunity

This month we are giving you all the tools you need to understand the business of self-publishing.

We have three events taking place with successful self-published writer Kylie Dunn across February and April, and all writers in Tasmania are invited to take part. The first workshop covers how to Turn Your Manuscript into a Book and will take place on February 19. This will be followed by an intensive. hands-on workshop How to Make an E-Book on February 26. In the final workshop on April 2 Kylie will show you how to launch and market your self-published book.

Each participant will receive a copy of Kylie’s book Write to Launch.

The first 10 people to enrol in the full course will receive a free 1-hour session post-course to discuss any elements of their self-publishing journey with Kylie. It is valid from 3 April 2017-2 April 2018 and details will be provided with your training materials.

Hurry to book now!

We are very excited to launch the Young Writers in the City of Glenorchy residency program: a collaboration between the Writers Centre and Glenorchy City Council which provides a unique opportunity for young writers to pursue inspiration in familiar and unfamiliar Glenorchy spaces.

We would like to invite applications to the scheme from young writers aged 16-30. Full details of the venues, which include Moonah Arts Centre, MONA, GASP! and the Migrant Resource Centre are available on our website.

Successful applicants will receive $500 and must be available to take up the residency between Wednesday 15 March and Sunday 30 April.
