Project Date: 1 September 2012 –

On Saturday 1 September 2012, CABN hosted a seminar on what was then a fairly recent innovation – e-publishing.

Speakers at the event were:

  • Allan Guthrie – writer and publisher, Blasted Heath Publishing.  Allan spoke about digital publishing, it’s impact on traditional publishing and new opportunities for writers
  • Inga McVicar – book marketing expert, Full Paper Jacket.  Inga gave a publisher’s perspective and discussed how the internet opens doors.
  • Peter Flannery – writer.  Peter is a local independent writer and spoke of his self and e-publishing journey.

Question and Answer sessions with each speaker were chaired by Borders based author, Margaret Skea.
