Event description


Self-publishing is fast becoming an accessible and respected route for new and aspiring Italian authors to get their work published. There are ever-growing options of platforms and services available, and the successful self-published names are likely to get the attention of traditional publishers, and can result in hybrid options, creating wider audiences, recognition, and sales.

Getting started is often the biggest challenge. This new online event will guide aspiring authors through the knowledge and initial steps that are required to navigate the self-publishing journey.
