New Generation Publishing are pleased to announce the Self Publishing Summit 2013

Welcome to the Self Publishing Summit 2013 – we hope to meet you there.

After the success of the 2012 event, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to the Self Publishing Summit 2013.

The date of this event is the 9th November 2013 and the location is the prestigious and magnificent Great Hall at King's College London.

The Self Publishing Summit will explore the contemporary methods of giving a voice to your story. We will be looking at traditional publishing, self-publishing, literary agents, distribution, printers, marketing, sales, author-expectations and more. We would like this day to be a celebration of writing, and the sharing of advice and insight from key industry figures and established authors with those just beginning their publishing journey.

The summit will begin at 9am with tea and coffee prior to a day of panels covering all aspects of publishing, self publishing, literary agents, marketing, promotion, editing, e-Books and social media.
