Back to What's On
This writers' workshop, Pathways to Publishing, will provide a ground-up model of how book publishing works - both creatively and commercially.
It doesn’t matter whether you are writing a novel, biography, children’s story, cookbook or popular psychology book, if you’re interested in publishing your book, it's of great importance to understand all the layers to the process and to have a strategy ready - because no matter how your book is published, it is going to be you who has to sell it.
Participants are requested to submit 150 words outlining their project in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org
Places are extremely limited and there is a $10pp registration fee for this event.
Saturday, 13 March 2021 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

This half-day workshop focussing on writing short fiction will cover topics such as story structure, the critical beginning of your story, building characters, the importance of setting and narrative drive and pacing.
Ideal for beginning to intermediate writers, please note this workshop will be hands-on and participants are requested to come prepared to write – preferably with a story you are already working on – or come prepared to begin a new one!
Workshop presenter, author Mark Smith, lives on Victoria’s Surf Coast. His debut novel, The Road To Winter (Text, 2016) was shortlisted for the Australian Indie Book Awards, the Readings YA Prize, The Forward Indie Awards (US) and the Queensland Literary Awards.
