BUDDING Isle of Wight writers will have the opportunity to pick up invaluable tips on the best ways to go about getting their books published.

Medina Bookshop continues to encourage Island writers with its ‘How To Get Published’ talk with best-selling author Louise Voss.

Having released 14 titles over her 20-year writing career, Louise has had books out via almost every publishing model, from deals with major traditional publishing houses to digital-only and self-publishing.

The 7pm presentation on Tuesday, May 24, will take the form of an informal conversation with shop manager Paul Armfield and there will be opportunities for the audience to ask questions.

Paul said: “The Island is such a hotbed of literary talent, barely a day goes by without a customer revealing to me that they've written a book.

“Who knows? There might be several potential best-selling authors in the audience on the 24th, just needing that little nudge in the right direction. We hope so!”

Tickets are £6 from Medina Bookshop on Cowes High Street or www.medinabookshop.com.
