If you're heading to the Byron Bay Writers Festival and you're interested in writing (you poor sod), it may behove you to check out the Nuts & Bolts professional development workshop for writers. BBWF Nuts & Bolts is proudly sponsored by The Australian Writer's Marketplace, and programmed and chaired by Queensland Writers Centre. Now in its fourth successful year, BBWF Nuts & Bolts will provide a full day of information for beginner/emerging writers seeking to develop the craft and business of writing.
This year it has the distinction of containing not one, but two Groths. They'll never know what hit them.
Date: Thursday 5 August
Time: 10am - 4pm Venue: SCU ROOM, Byron Community & Cultural Centre, Byron Bay
I'll be on the afternoon panel on digital publishing, kicking off at 1:00pm. This session will include four presentations, with a moderated Q&A.
- if:book Australia representative: Digital publishing overview
- Rob Collings, publisher: Digital markets: opportunities and marketing
- Simon Groth: an author’s experience in digital publishing
- Alex Adsett, publishing contracts specialist: New business models: risks and rights
Darren's session is on after mine, so he gets the last word. Typical.
