It was a really well thought out schedule, at a stylish venue, with a great mix of guest speakers. Lots of takeaway value, so not just enjoyable but useful too.

THE author SCHOOL day

Full-Day Programme

 

Address: TBC

Date: November 18th 2019

Time: 10 - 5.30

Speakers to be confirmed!

Registration starts from 9.30am. If you arrive early please give us time to set up by waiting in the foyer downstairs. The first class will begin at 10am.

 

The Author School offers an unrivalled, fun and informative day that is designed for authors at all stages of their journey. Whether you've not yet written a word, or have had hundreds of books published, you are guaranteed to learn a lot from spending the day with us at The Author School. You'll make friends (fellow authors!) for life, contacts that you can call upon for years, and pick up tips and ideas that you can start using immediately. We founded The Author School in 2015 to provide balanced, unbiased, honest, practical advice to authors in a confusing world of mixed messages. We've been working in publishing for many years from different perspectives and have made lots of lovely contacts over these years. We invite our trusted friends and colleagues to join us on these special day-long events to share their knowledge with you. Investing less than £100 into your author career, and taking just one day out of your week to focus fully on your writing, will produce amazing results!
