Everything you need to know about the stages of publication, from promoting your manuscript to negotiating cover designs.

Lockdown has been a time of uncertainty for many, but lots of people have turned to creativity as a way of coping and keeping busy. If you have always wanted to be a writer, and you’ve toyed with the idea of getting your work in print, Rosie offers a detailed overview of the publishing process.

In this 20 minute class, Rosie will talk you through what work tends to sell (and what is harder to sell), how to market your work, what to expect when your manuscript is finally accepted, and how to recover from knockbacks.
