"Life is a Zig Zag" - Journeys to Publication
SATURDAY 8 MAY 2021, 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
THE JOY COWLEY ROOM AT THE ROYAL HOTEL
Emerging writers share their stories to publication. Rachel Kerr, author of Ockham-longlisted Victory Park, chose a traditional road to publication – doing a writing course and submitting to a publisher, while Lucy Revill (The Residents: Made in Wellington) wrote over 150 blogs and chose to self-publish. Philippa Cameron (A High Country Life) started by building a fanbase on Instagram, and then sought a publishing house to publish her book.
Catherine Robertson (owner of Good Books bookshop and author of seven, six of which were #1 New Zealand bestselling novels) will explore the three authors’ routes to publication, their experiences and their tips for new writers coming through.
