Our first evening event will be a guided social where we will introduce ourselves and discuss current projects. At 7.30 we will discuss publicity (for any genre and whether independently or traditionally published). What has and hasn't worked? Do share!
Award-winning children's author Helen Docherty and SoA staffer Jo McCrum will host the evening, but this will be an interactive event and everyone will be encouraged to contribute from the outset.
A cash-bar will be open throughout the evening; and there will be plenty of time to have a chat and make friends. We will provide a table for a book display if you would like to bring your latest title and a range of publicity materials (at your own risk!).
This is a free event with a cash-bar and anyone is welcome; so do circulate details on to any writing groups you are involved with. However, we would like participants to book their place through Eventbrite so that we have a good idea of numbers. Guests are allowed to come to two regional events before they are asked to consider joining the Society.
Email if you are interested in sharing travel, would like to buddy-up with fellow members or would like to book a ten-minute private 121 with Jo about any professional matter. These sessions must be booked in advance so that she can review any necessary paperwork/contract.
Volcano is a short work from Swansea train station at 27-29 High St, Swansea, SA1 1LG 27-29. The venue is wheelchair friendly.
