Preparing for Publication                         Tuesday 7.30-9.30pm (Feb 7,14,21)

It takes a great deal of work to turn a manuscript into a book – and it’s a minefield trying to get it published. After three sessions (on manuscript preparation; design and layout; producing and selling) with publishing professional Alison Shakspeare you’ll be better equipped to decide whether you want to look for a publisher or become a self-publisher; and how to produce a professional volume at a realistic cost – whether it is just for you and your family, or whether you want to sell it.

‘An invaluable course [that] neatly collates all topics … commonsense explanations and logical approach are readily understandable’. Contact 01363 774740 for more details.

Tickets £60 for three sessions from
