ACT Writers Centre event: publishing for authors from a non-English speaking background

Event: How to sell your book to an Australian publisher – a Writing Australia workshop for writers from non-English speaking backgrounds (NESB) with publishing expert Rhonda Whitton
Date: Saturday 4 February
Time: 10am-5pm
Venue: Belconnen Arts Centre, 118 Emu Bank, Belconnen

This FREE workshop is presented with the support of Writing Australia and is specially tailored for people who were born overseas and for whom English is their second or third language. Writing can be a self-absorbing process and emerging authors often overlook the importance of presenting their book to a publisher or agent in a concise, convincing and professional proposal package. This workshop will show writers how to submit their work to commissioning editors of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Participants should have a near finished work, and will be assisted in creating the best submission for proposal to a publisher.
