Do it yourself: grassroots writing and publishing

A salon hosted by CAMEo at LBC Depot, Leicester

This salon will bring together writers, authors, academics, independent publishers, zine-makers and other creatives to look at what it takes to make grassroots writing and publishing work. Join us for a lively event exploring the opportunities and challenges for independent publishers and self-published authors, as we share experiences and practices in the grassroots literary scene in Leicester and beyond.
