Have you ever wondered how books get published or how to get a book of your own published? This class will cover everything you need to know about the stages of publication; from promoting your manuscript to negotiating cover designs. 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.  

After experiencing a turbulent year we can see how many people have turned to creativity as a coping mechanism and as a way of 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.
