– Opportunities for women in the creative field, publishing, writing and event management.  Sectors which offer more options or possibilities. Qualifications needed vs learning on the job

 – The role of women in literature, how this has changed and developed, both inside the covers of the book and in the world surrounding wirting and publishing.

– Becoming a writer, the tips and strategies to get that book written.  How to get published, agents, support and getting it out there.

– Changes in the industry over the years. Effect of technology and globalisation.

Listen to Lisa’s experience, advice and tips on writing and publishing!
