Description

Are you the creative type? Are you the one who always has the best ideas? Have you always wanted to become a writer? Or have you been writing all your life and you want to know how to get published? If so then this event is definitely for you!

The Frankfurt Writers’ Seminar is an event where German as well as international and bestselling authors will take the stage to talk about their own experiences. How they first started. How they improved their craft. How they get inspired. What it took to get published. What their best advice is for aspiring writers. How to go about self-publishing. At this new event, unique to Frankfurt, the invited speakers will discuss this all and more!

And that’s not all. We will also invite a renowned German publishing house. Their representative will explain what it is they look for, what the best way is to approach publishing and what you definitely should not do.

With 5 internationally successful writers, a publisher and around 100 (aspiring) writers this is a perfect occasion to learn, to get inspired, to grow and to network. So don’t wait and get your tickets now!
