I’ve been to my share of writing classes and workshops and I always get some useful information that I can use to hone my writing skills. There are workshops on just about every aspect of writing you could imagine. But I’ve rarely seen any advertised in Northern Ireland dealing with the business side of writing – things like how to get published or what to consider if you decide to self-publish. So, ever since Fermanagh Writers organised the Getting Published workshop with the Feldstein Literary Agency I eagerly anticipated the day of the workshop.
The workshop was held on Saturday and I wasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed a day crammed with information about the publishing side of writing. What I learned will help me if I decide to one day approach a traditional publisher and it also gave me an insight into the current world of publishing which is very different than that world was even a decade ago. It was one of the most interesting workshops I’ve attended – definitely a day well spent. An added bonus was that the Feldsteins knew their stuff and were very approachable.
