EventsBrisbane-based events for indie authors
Writing a book can be a lonely endeavour. By its very nature, being an author is a solitary occupation and the process of getting words down on the page means that you have to spend many hours tapping away at a keyboard on your own. But there’s no question that authors need support and can definitely benefit from being involved in a collaborative and vibrant creative community.
Since Brisbane Self Publishing Service was launched in 2014, we’ve found that focusing on building connections with other industry publishing professionals (including illustrators, Photoshop artists, ebook conversion and audiobook specialists, and printers) has meant that we now have access to a trusted team of specialist service providers who we can call on whenever the need arises.
A Central Hub for Brisbane Indie Authors
A cornerstone principle of Brisbane Self Publishing Service has been to establish a central hub for local indie authors and fosters a thriving self-publishing author community.
From the outset, a key objective of our business has been to create a supportive and nurturing environment for indie authors by providing helpful book publishing advice, as well as organising opportunities for authors to pool resources through sharing their success stories, as well as chatting about common issues and roadblocks. And to fulfill this objective, we offer a range of online and in-person events, including workshops and Meet and Mingle get-togethers where authors can learn more about the self-publishing process, as well as network with each other on an ad-hoc basis.
Feedback about our events from local authors
Thanks for inviting me to your Christmas Party. It was nice to chat to other people who are interested in the process of writing and publishing, and of course make some contacts that might be very helpful in the future.
Thank you to Kirsty and Patrice for providing a wonderful opportunity to meet authors and publishing service providers. Having a foot in both camps as an author and digital marketer, I found it very rewarding to be able to talk to others about books and writing in this new self-publishing landscape.
What a fabulous networking event hosted by Kirsty and Patrice! A great opportunity to mingle with like-minded folk and swap publishing stories, ideas and experiences. I picked up a couple of useful tips about writing and connected with some new author buddies.
