Event Details

  • Do you have a story you want to share with the world?
  • How can you transform your manuscript into a printed book?
  • Would you like to be a published author?

The TELL YOUR STORY self-publishing workshop will show you how you can publish a book you will be proud of.


This hands-on and informative half-day workshop will teach you all of the stages required to transform your story into a printed book or ebook.

Kirsty Ogden will introduce her unique approach to book publication – The Five ‘C’s of Self Publishing. Her practical, user-friendly approach demystifies the process of book publication as she steps you through each stage of a book publishing project including:

  • structural/copy editing
  • proofreading
  • typesetting/formatting the interior page layout
  • designing an eye-catching cover
  • book admin/author publishing services.

Ably assisted by colleague, Patrice Shaw, these two professionals have what it takes to guide you on your journey to become a published author.


During the TELL YOUR STORY self-publishing workshop you will learn about:

  • each stage of the self-publishing process: from editing and proofreading, through to page layout/typesetting, book cover design and printing (plus ebook conversion/distibution)
  • the benefits (financial and personal) of self publishing your manuscript.

This workshop is perfect if you want to discover a straightforward step-by-step method to self publish your book.There will be plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions, and you will go home feeling inspired and energised, with a detailed action plan for publishing your book.
