South Hams Authors Network

I have set up this group to allow the exchange of ideas, knowledge, experiences, contacts etc for the following:

1) Authors keen to get published

2) Published authors keen to get noticed

I fall into the second category and am keen to get to know people in the same position, plus help others get started.
We usually meet once a month at a local venue and often have guest speakers (such as author Teresa Driscoll pictured above).  Membership is free and all events are free to attend.
The network meetings discuss issues such as:
Types of publishing, literary agents. contracts, events, websites, social media, marketing, editing, proof reading, scams to avoid, sales, kindle, adverts, book trailers, audio books and much more; in fact anything relevant that anybody wants to bring to the group.
New members are always welcome.

South Hams Literary Festival

Our first ever literary festival took place on the 15th and 16th October 2022 and proved to be an exciting event.  There were readings and talks from local authors, workshops, poetry recitals, children's activities, stalls, raffles, competitions and more.  This took place at the Clay Factory near Ivybridge and admission was free.

In September 2023 a further literary festival was held by the Network, this time based around the town of Ivybridge, Devon. Special guests included: Jane Corry, Sarah Pearse, Pip Payne and Jackie Juno along with a host of local authors.
