The Self-Publishing Conference 2024

Now in its 10th year, the conference brings authors together with experts to learn, network and be inspired.

The Self-Publishing Conference is the UK’s longest-established dedicated self-publishing event. In this, its 10th year, the conference offers authors a chance to find out about a wide range of publishing options, to hear from and question those who work within the thriving self-publishing world and to network with fellow authors, many of whom will already be experienced self-publishers.

Why should you attend?

The informal event in Leicester, UK aims to educate, inform and inspire authors who are self-publishing their work, or who are considering it as a route to publication. The day attracts a wide variety of authors, from fiction to children’s, non-fiction to business, and the day is structured so that delegates can choose the sessions that are of the most relevance to them.

As well as the sessions throughout the day, authors will have plenty of opportunities to network, ask questions of experts and connect with fellow authors for a day full of knowledge gathering.

What does the day include?

Sessions run by experts - Our experts come from a variety of areas of the self-publishing world. From editors to authors, designers to metadata professionals, the experts we gather, combined with the team from Troubador Publishing, offer a wide range of insights for authors.

Networking with like-minded authors - Authors that attend can expect to be part of a group of enthusiastic, interesting and motivated authors across all genres. There will be multiple breaks throughout the day where you'll be able to spend time chatting with other authors about their publishing journey.

Great food and freebies - Learning from experts in the sessions and getting to know other authors is surprisingly hard work. So, we make sure that we always line up a delicious hot lunch alongside snacks and coffee throughout the day. Plus each author will take away a bag full of freebies.
