Online Masterclasses for Authors

Online Masterclasses for Authors

A new series of online masterclasses for authors from Publishing Talk to help you reach your full potential.

The Publishing Talk Masterclasses are a new series of online masterclasses for authors: talks, interviews, seminars, workshops and lectures on topics from becoming a bestseller to being a more productive writer to perfecting your submission to agents. Packed with insights, advice and value to help you become a successful author – with the chance to put your questions to the experts.

You can join our masterclasses from anywhere in the world – and there’s access to a video replay too, if you miss anything. We also make the video replays and any PDF handouts included available to our Patrons – who also get discounts. Masterclasses take place online, via Zoom. Each lasts around 90 minutes, including time for questions, and starts at 6:30pm UK time. Each masterclass is priced at £10-£30 (or equivalent in your currency).

Online masterclasses for authors by industry insiders

Our speakers include bestselling authors, agents, publishers and industry experts. They’ll lift the lid on the publishing industry and advise you on how to become a bestseller, how to self-publish, how to get an agent and a traditional publishing deal, how to work with editors, how to be a more productive writer, and more.

New events will be listed on this page – and make sure you sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear about new masterclasses as they’re announced. You can also read more detail about individual masterclasses.

Hope to see you at a masterclass soon!
