Self-Publishing Summit 2016
We are delighted to be holding our fourth Self-Publishing Summit at King's College London on Saturday 16th January. The Summit sees top industry professionals - including authors, editors, agents, printers, marketers, retailers and more - discuss the current market and full self-publishing process. This includes choosing your self-publishing options, editing, production, marketing, sales and other revenue streams from your work. We would be delighted if you could join us for another fascinating and productive day. We are also adding in an afternoon pitch session this year - a great opportunity for authors to receive direct feedback from industry professionals.
