Friday, October 30, Wildwood Kitchen, 7.30pm: Is self-published still a dirty word or the sign of a new breed of author – the autonomous entrepreneur writer? And is traditional publishing no longer still the thing to aim for?
With the publishing industry rapidly changing and opportunities to self-publish now available to new and established authors alike, what is the future of publishing? We’re delighted to have a panel of experts to debate the issue and talk about the latest innovations in publishing and how they see it’s future. This event is a must for any new or established author!
Our panel is chaired by Culture Minister and Wantage MP Ed Vaizey.
The panel includes
After a 50 minute discussion, there will be an interval for a spot of networking followed by a chance for members of the audience to pitch their idea/book directly to the panel for feedback (5 minutes maximum per pitch including feedback). We will have approximately eight slots available for people to publicly pitch, so book your ticket fast to guarantee your place! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your booking confirmation number to request a pitch slot. First come, first served!
And a wonderful bonus if you book this event and you’re a self-published author… Bring along a selection of your books and we will put them on display for the general public to browse and buy at The Beacon, Wantage, during the festival that weekend. With famous novelist Fay Weldon speaking on Sunday afternoon, The Beacon will be busy – so don’t miss this opportunity to get your work in the public eye!
We recommend no more than a few copies per author. Please email email@example.com to tell us how many books you are bringing once you’ve booked your ticket. Please quote your ticket number or booking reference. You will have to be available to collect your books from The Beacon on Sunday afternoon, November 1.
