Self-Publishing in the Digital Age; Writers & Artists’ Conference

self-publishing in the digital age


On Saturday 7th November the I_AM Self-Publishing team will be going along to the Writers & Artists’ conference entitled “Self-Publishing in the Digital Age“. The conference, which is held in the beautiful Wellcome Collection, is a whole day event featuring some of the most respected (and even super star bestseller) figures of self-publishing today.  This is a rare opportunity to get the “hows” and “whys” from the individuals who have been there, done that and made it work for them. Tickets are still available here for only £95, so we hope we’ll see you there!
