The panel on “How to Get Published” was chaired by Misha Herwin, and included Sue Boulton, Peter Coleborn, Ralph Alcock and me.
We spent an hour discussing all aspects of getting into print either with heritage publishing houses, small presses or as independent/self-published. There were questions invited throughout. Some of the audience were already in print and others had yet to take the plunge but we sprinted across a surprising quantity of topics in such a short time.
I hope the audience had as much fun listening and asking as we did chatting and answering!
Live Age Events are taking place all this weekend in Stoke on Trent and Leek, continuing collaboration between Keele University and the New Vic Theatre, which showcases the work and talents of local older people, arts organisations and practitioners across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire.
