The Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust, a charity that aids the publication of motoring history, will hold a Self-Publishing Workshop at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, on 30th Saturday September.
Announcing the MSMT’s latest conference, Ray Hutton, chairman of the Trustees, said: ‘We see that many of the authors who apply to the Trust for advice and assistance, are planning to self-publish. That can be because traditional publishing houses increasingly shy away from books on specialized subjects or simply that authors prefer to have control of the printing and distribution of their books.
‘So our 2023 conference is a workshop on self-publishing. In the morning sessions, publishing and printing experts will review the many options now available to the self-publisher. The afternoon sessions will be concerned with the practical aspects of book production – editing, design and presentation – and sales and distribution.
‘The conference will include successful self-publishers and well-known motoring authors and editors, so it should be an ideal primer for anyone planning a first book.’
Organised by the Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust
