Matera Women's Fiction FestivalWomen’s fiction writers … and female authors of romances, thrillers, mysteries, fantasy, young adult and just about any other genre out there, you have less than a month ’til the Matera Women’s Fiction Festival, so be sure to sign up.  I already wrote about this year’s festival in an earlier post .

There are lots of sessions planned about the changing publishing industry, how to find an agent, how to work with editors, whether to publish traditionally or self-publish. There will be comparisons of the American, UK, Italian, French and German markets.

And, of course, there will be one-on-one pitch sessions with agents and editors. If you’re attending, be sure to schedule these by 15 September!

There are also tutoring sessions on using social media and researching historical fiction, and excellent brainstorming sessions to help you smooth out any problems in your current work-in-progress.

And, of course, it all takes place in beautiful Matera, with its stunning views and great food and wine. So sign up now. Look forward to seeing you in Matera!
