The Margate Bookie is launching its New Publishers programme aimed at young people aged 16-25.
The Margate Bookie will run a range of publishing workshops at Margate Library, covering everything from editing and marketing to printing and artwork. The programme will run from 10.30am to noon on February 4, 11, 18 & 25 and March 4 & 11.
New Publishers is sponsored by Kent County Council’s Reconnect Programme and the Amazon Literary Partnership.
Teaming up with local publishing experts, New Publishers helps writers produce a collection of creative pieces for an upcoming festival event. Programmed and coordinated by Bookie team member Justin Brown, New Publishers features editor Jessica Rose (Co-relate), Marketing and PR expert Francesca Baker (And So She Thinks), and publishing Editor-in-Chief Connor Sansby (Whisky and Beards).
Margate Bookie founder Andreas Loizou, whose books have been translated into 12 languages, said: “Join New Publishers to learn skills and meet new friends. It’s a fun way to take your first steps in publishing.”
Deadline for registration for New Publishers is Friday 27 January. Spaces are limited.
