BERRY WRITERS FESTIVAL LOGO

FRI 21st - SUN 23rd OCTOBER 2022

Former publisher and literary agent, and now free-lance editor and consultant, Mary Cunnane will demystify the publishing process for writers as it operates both in Australia and internationally. 

How are books signed up? 

What will a publisher do for an author?

Do you need an agent? And, if so, how do you find the right one for you?

What are the key elements of an effective book proposal?

What is the art of the pitch?

How do royalties and commissions work?

These are just some of the questions that will be answered in the morning session.  The afternoon session will involve a mock publishers’ acquisitions meeting during which participants will informally present their project to the group for discussion and feedback.
