Join us on Saturday, 1 December at 1.30 pm at the Central Library for a public talk and Q&A session on “How to get published”. There is a great panel for this exciting event made up of top industry experts from New Zealand’s publishing industry.
As a precursor to our “How To Get Published” event, we are going to do a weekly feature blog on each member of the panel and their specialist areas of interest in the publishing world.
