Small scale publishing, self-publishing, and print on demand, catering for academic niches too small for conventional publishers is increasingly common.

This training session from two experienced practitioners will look at why you might consider self-publishing and what that entails.

We will be looking at different ways of going about it, and everything in the process from preparing text, to typesetting, to securing an ISBN, to reaching your audience and different ways of printing on demand.

Professor Ann Parry Owen has been leader of the ‘Poets of the Nobility’ project since 1993. This project produced 44 volumes of poetry over twenty years, produced entirely in house by the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies.

Dr Daniel Reed, is Research Fellow, Public Engagement Manager with the Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History. In this role he has overseen a collection of micro-publications intended to bring scholarly work to specific audiences which might not otherwise have appealed to a conventional publisher.

Dr Adam Chapman is the General Editor of the Victoria County History, part of the Centre for the History of People, Place and Community and a medieval historian.
