ASA self-publishing workshop

Australian Society of Authors (ASA) is running a two-day workshop that will cast light on the myths and realities of self-publishing in 2018 and increase your chances of publishing success.

This comprehensive professional workshop will give you:

  • An in-depth understanding of the entire publishing, sales, marketing and distribution process
  • An invaluable resource pack to help you publish safely
  • A list of contacts for reliable sources of advice and expertise
  • The opportunity to receive direct feedback on your work in relation to certain steps of the process
  • A tutorial on how to turn your manuscript into an ebook
  • Advice on creating a public profile and developing speaking skills
  • Feedback from authors with experience of self-publishing
  • A networking marketplace to meet competent and ethical providers
  • Familiarity with metadata, keywords and SEO
  • The confidence to publish your work as a professional.

You will take away many valuable resources, including:

  • Costing template, sample rights reversion letter and P&L template
  • Tips and tricks to help you select competent and ethical service providers
  • A completed title budget for your work
  • Information on how to apply for a US tax file number
  • A draft publicity campaign for your book
  • A targeted press release.

The ASA advises members on their publishing options on a daily basis and no one has seen more traditional and self-publishing arrangements—both good and bad—than we have. We’re therefore uniquely positioned to offer you expert advice and in-depth knowledge on the entire process.
