Self-Publishing Local History
Are you a local historian? Have you researched the history of your local area or one specific aspect of that rich history and are now ready to share your work with others? This workshop will show you how to go about publishing your book. Many authors now choose to self-publish and this workshop is designed to introduce self-publishing to the independent local history author, providing step-by-step guidelines. It will outline how to avoid the common pitfalls and will guide you on the path to becoming a successful, published independent author.
Without local historians, many aspects of vital local history would be lost to present and future generations. Publishing this work preserves the research and the information for many years to come. It enriches our lives and helps us to understand the present through the work of our local historian.
Siobhán has worked with many local history writers and with a three-decade long professional career in publishing, she is perfectly positioned to help you to get published and to give you the advice you need.
This online half-day workshop, facilitated by editor Siobhán Prendergast of Dingle Publishing, full member of AFEPI Ireland and Advanced Professional Member of CIEP, will begin on Saturday 8th May, 9.30–12.30pm, as part of the Irish Writers Centre professional courses for writers.
Tickets cost just €43 for IWC members or €48 for non-members.
“Siobhán is a highly experienced publishing professional offering the full suite of services for authors and publishers alike. It was a pleasure to work with her on a recent project and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, and look forward to working with her again.”
