Recommended Online Event [9th-11th September 2016]

The Festival of Writing is held every year.

This year it’s at at the University of York, in September.

It’s not a self-publishing event, but as a self-published author, I got immense value from this event last year.

I will be attending all weekend this year, I hope to see you there!
