How to be an Author

In this online event featuring How to Be an Author, Fremantle Press takes you behind the scenes with some great life hacks for an author in Australia.

Over three panels filled with practical advice and tips to help you on the path to publication, Holden Sheppard will be in conversation with the authors of the book, Fremantle Press publisher Georgia Richter and Curtin University Senior Lecturer Deborah Hunn, as well as fellow contributor, Marketing and Communications Manager Claire Miller.

They will be answering questions commonly asked by new and emerging writers, such as ‘how do I prepare my manuscript for submission?’, ‘how do I pitch to a publisher?’, ‘what is a publicist?’, ‘how does workshopping work?’ and ‘how can I use social media to help my career?’

This workshop consists of three 45-minute sessions (with 15-minute breaks) that will focus on the following:

  • The writer’s editorial process and how to prepare a manuscript
  • How to construct an author brand and promotion of the book
  • Writing groups and feedback.

Sunday 20 June at 10.00am
