Ex­pert tips for writ­ers and au­thors

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ararat district writ­ers and au­thors have an in­vi­ta­tion to at­tend a free self-pub­lish­ing work­shop at Ararat Re­gional Li­brary from 1pm to­day.

Blaise van Hecke, di­rec­tor of Mel­bourne-based Busy­bird Pub­lish­ing, is pre­sent­ing the work­shop.

Ararat Ru­ral City Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive Tim Har­ri­son said the work­shop was an op­por­tu­nity for writ­ers to get in­side tips from an in­dus­try ex­pert.

Ms van Hecke is co-owner of Busy­bird, and a writer, pho­tog­ra­pher and artist who reg­u­larly runs work­shops on pub­lish­ing, writ­ing and edit­ing.

She has had ar­ti­cles pub­lished about the topic, and is the au­thor of The Book: 12 steps to suc­cess­ful pub­lish­ing.

The work­shop will help par­tic­i­pants learn: • The dif­fer­ences be­tween tra­di­tional pub­lish­ing and self-pub­lish­ing. • How to iden­tify un­scrupu­lous prac­tices in the in­dus­try. • The process of telling your story from A to Z. • How to keep costs to a min­i­mum.
