WRITERS across the region will be given the chance to gain an insight into the benefits of publishing their works online, when the Goulburn Valley Writer’s Group host an e-publishing themed ‘Let’s Get Publishing’ workshop at the end of the month.
Running on Sunday, November 30 at the Mechanics Institute, 227 Wyndham Street, Shepparton the two-part workshop session will be presented by Writing Mentor and Director of Busybird Publishing, Blaise van Hecke, who is well versed in helping writers achieve their publishing dreams.
The Digital Landscape session, running from 10am to 12 noon will explore different forms of internet publishing, including blogging and e-books, as well as how to raise funds through crowd funding.
The afternoon session on Getting Published will run from 1:30pm to 3:30pm covering different forms of publishing from traditional, partnership publishing and self-publishing.
President of the Goulburn Valley Writer’s Group, Robyn Black said the workshop would help writers to embrace technology to find new markets for their work using the internet, e-books and other publishing opportunities.
“We’re excited to offer this workshop to the public, which has been generously funded by Writers Victoria and the Grace Marion Wilson Trust,” Robyn said.
Blaise said, “It’s important that people are aware of the benefits of e-publishing. The beauty of publishing digitally gives you international distribution of your published work.”
Each session will come to a cost of $10 ($8 concession) and is limited to the first 50 people to book.
