How to pitch and market a book – one-day course

My successful course for authors, How to pitch and market a book, will run again at London’s Frontline Club if a sufficient number of people are interested. The last course was well-received by those who attended and there are examples of favourable feedback on my website. The course is aimed at at anyone thinking of writing a book, but will especially benefit people who can bring a current project with them.

This course will provide you with:

  1. Practical advice on pitching – the vital first step in your journey.

  2. An overview of the publishing market.

  3. Information and advice on contracts, commission structures and fees.

  4. Tips on completing your manuscript to brief, to deadline and to a high standard.

  5. A briefing on the importance of helping to market your book and some practical techniques for doing so.

It costs £250 for the day, plus VAT. The student/teacher ratio is kept very low to make sure there is plenty of individual feedback. The fee includes lunch. Anyone interested should contact using the course title link above or on the right hand sidebar of this blog. Once enough people have registered an interest we’ll confirm a date.
