HOW TO BEHAVE IN PUBLIC
A half-day workshop for published and soon-to-be-published authors with Jo Unwin
You’ve written the best book you could possibly write.
Now you want people to buy it.
Whether you’re talking about your book at the pub to a friend, or you’re trying to entice an agent, you need to know how to talk about it effectively.
Whether you’re reading aloud at a literary event, or you’re asked to promote it on the radio, you need to know how make your book sound not just good, but irresistible.
The day will cover essential topics – all aimed towards making you the best ‘public person’ possible. Including:
1 • THE PITCH: What is a pitch? How can you distil your hard-wrought 80,000 words into just a few words that will MAKE PEOPLE WANT TO BUY THE BOOK.
2 • BEING INTERVIEWED: Your book’s published and you’ve been invited to talk about it on the radio or at a festival – how can you make best use of the few minutes you have to really sell your book.
3 • READING ALOUD: How to make people sit up and take notice. Conquer your fear of public speaking. How to engage the audience.
Don’t waste an opportunity to get people to WANT TO BUY THE BOOK.
All these topics and more will be covered on the day. Sign-up now, space limited to 20.
