Some Tasmanian authors may want to go to this

D.I.Y. publishing seminar

While I don't advocate self-publishing, I accept that poets are often driven to embracing it, and this will be a good seminar: it's been held before and promises to cover all bases: Organised by the Society of Editors (Tas) INc.

There are a few places left, so come along and learn from the experts before you take the plunge into the world of self-publishing. Publishing professionals and experienced self-publishers will share their knowledge and answer your questions.

Topics include:
· Can you afford to publish your book?
· Preparing your manuscript
· Editing and design
· Printing costs and specifications
· Marketing and distribution

When: 10 am – 4 pm, Saturday 24 September 2005
Where: Room 405, Hytten Hall, University of Tasmania, French Street, Sandy
Bay --
Registrations need to be in by 16 September

Non-members: $100
