The festival is a great way to learn about the publishing industry today, how the environment is changing and what writers should do to keep on top of these changes and to benefit from them.
There’s also the chance to meet one-on-one with agents and editors for pitching sessions and with social media experts to help with your platform.
I look forward to attending for the third year, and I must admit that I find the return to Matera as enjoyable as the festival itself. The great food and wine don’t hurt either. : )
For more information on the Matera Women’s Fiction Festival, see their website including registration information, my post on last year’s event, and a travel post I did about the spectacular, UNESCO-heritage site town of Matera.
Hope to see you in the caves this September!
