No matter how brilliant a writer you are, getting published the conventional way is a notoriously difficult thing to do. Tolkein, Steinbeck, and Faulkner were all politely rejected at first. J.K Rowling too.
There’s no need to lose hope though.
As part of Wordstock Deconstructed, 26 have organised an event which might just give you the upper hand.
‘Getting Published’ will take place on the 28th November, downstairs at The Betsey Trotwood pub, and our panel of published authors will explore all the conventional and unconventional routes to publication.
Our panel includes Elise Valmorbida (author of Matilde Waltzing, The TV President and soon to be published by Faber ‘Madonna of the Mountains’), John Simmons (Author of Spanish Crossings, collective novel ‘Keeping Mum’, and the Dark Angels Trilogy) and poet Rishi Dastidar (author of Tickertape). They will all be on hand to give you invaluable tips and answer your questions.
