A State of Writing and Red Hill Publishing are presenting The Publishing Boot Camp – the first event of its kind for Queensland and possibly Australia: an independent event focusing on the business side of books, writing and publishing
Speakers include head of the Queensland Writers Centre Kate Eltham, bestselling author Kim Wilkins, book marketer extraordinaire Joanna Penn, and the team from Ligare Printing, NSW’s largest specialist book printer.
For independent authors, self-published authors and anyone looking to work in book publishing, the Publishing Boot Camp will be an unparalleled opportunity to tap into the knowledge of industry leaders. Participants will get the inside track on options such as ebooks and print on demand; getting books into reader’s hands, what makes a great book cover; how a good editor can add value to a book – overall, a 360-degree view of the business.
The Publishing Boot Camp will be held at the State Library of Queensland on Saturday 27 November 2010. For more info and registration details, visit http://redhillpublishing.com/events/bootcamp2010
