Hosted by Matador, the Self-Publishing Conference is the UK’s only dedicated self-publishing event. TLC is delighted to be attending as a guest speaker, in the session ‘More than Just an Edit’

The Self-Publishing Conference is the UK’s only dedicated self-publishing event, offering authors a chance to find out about a wide range of publishing options, to hear from and question those who work within the thriving self-publishing world, and to network with fellow authors, many of whom will already be experienced self-publishers.

Now it its sixth year, the conference is supported and sponsored by many familiar names, including the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook, Nielsen, Matador and Writing Magazine. The event attracts experienced professionals from the worlds of editing, marketing, production, design and distribution.

The informal event aims to educate, inform and inspire authors who are publishing their own work, or who are considering that as a route to market. The day attracts a wide variety of authors, from fiction to children’s, non-fiction to business, and the day is structured so that delegates can choose those sessions through the day that are of the most relevance to their own requirements.

Previous years have seen overwhelmingly positive feedback for the event, and it tends to sell out quickly. In 2018, the cost of attending is again £65.00. Full details of the conference speakers and sessions can be found on this website, along with a registration form should you wish to register. In addition, we have made many resources from previous years’ events available in our resource centre.
