A group of 24 aspiring writers filled March Town Hall to learn more about the world of publishing at Prose to Print, a workshop run by local indie publisher Bird’s Nest Books.
Claire Upton led a session on creative writing, which was followed by Jane Levicki’s presentations on various types of publishing solutions.
From traditional publishers to smaller indie presses and self-publishing, explaining the pros and cons of all approaches.
After lunch Claire led a panel of three guest speakers, authors Sue Welfare, Jon Lawrence and Darren O’Sullivan.
All three have been successfully published in different ways.
