Selwyn Community Education is based at Selwyn College, Kohimarama, Auckland.

This course runs Saturday and Sunday 22 -23 August 2020 10am - 4pm each day as part of our 2020 Writing Weekend Programme.

Tutor: Kevin Booth.

Writing and publishing a book is a huge feat of artistic expression. Just a few years ago, and author's creative input into their work would virtually cease the moment they handed their manuscript to a publishing house. Now, new technologies allow authors to once again retain control of the entire creative process. So-called "self-publishing" is actually a collaborative creative effort of diverse professionals, in which the primary creator takes the driving seat.

Writing and publishing a book is a huge feat of artistic expression. Just a few years ago, and author's creative input into their work would virtually cease the moment they handed their manuscript to a publishing house. However, this was not always the case, and new technologies now allow independent authors once again retain control of the entire creative process. So-called "self-publishing" is actually a collaborative creative effort of diverse professionals, in which the primary creator takes the driving seat. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on independent authors making the creative, production and marketing decisions about their own work, while retaining and exercising their rights to their own work.

Participants in this course will learn how to publish their writing projects to a professional level, harnessing the latest technology to do so, learning where to look for the resources they need and avoiding many expensive pitfalls along the way. This course is aimed at authors of all kinds, both fiction and non-fiction. The content is divided into four sessions of two parts each. Click through to our website to see details of all sessions and content covered.

You are invited to attend our opening address at 9am on Saturday 22 August. Carole Beu from the Women's Bookshop will fire up the day with an early morning talk on her raves and faves. Have a cuppa, listen to Carol and meet others.

Our mission is to provide quality affordable and accessible lifelong learning opportunities for our community.
