Event Registration

Writers SA presents an on-demand workshop that you can watch in your own time for a short time. Two videos will give an overview of the traditional publishing model in Australia, and overseas, followed by some self-publishing options. You can then download the FAQ's and a spreadsheet with some handy details about which genres are best represented by Australian vs overseas markets.

**Please note this is an on-demand course so as soon as you complete the registration, you will be emailed a link and password. Please ignore the December date**

There’s an overwhelming amount of information available on how to publish a book, and (based on other writers’ anecdotes) an infinite number of pathways to publication. But how do you navigate it all without falling into an expensive hole, and where do you start? How do you decide the right path for you and your manuscript? This workshop will give you an overview of the Australian publishing landscape and the different pathways to publication for novel-length works. It will explore traditional publishing and self-publishing, across both fiction and non-fiction. Discover the resources available to aspiring writers, and learn to navigate the maze that is getting published.


Participants will gain a better understanding of:

  • The Australian book publishing industry
  • How a book is chosen for traditional publishing
  • The difference between traditional and self-publishing
  • Assisted publishing options (with reputable consultants)
  • When you need to look for an agent (if you need to look for an agent)
