Local Author Fair: Author Registration

Local Author Fair: Author Registration

Posted on behalf of West Sussex Libraries

West Sussex Libraries are pleased to announce that registration is open to exhibitors for our upcoming local author fair. Running as the finale to Libraries Week, this event provides the opportunity for authors based in West Sussex to meet fellow authors, publishers and potential readers.

The author fair is designed as a drop-in event in the meetings rooms on the first floor of Crawley Library, allowing you to display your books, meet the public and network with other authors. You are welcome to bring copies of books to sell, but we ask that you handle all sales yourself and bring a cash float if required.

Whilst the event is free for the public to attend, there is a £20 registration fee for exhibitors, payable by cash on the day.

Registering for a stand at the fair will enable you to:

  • promote and sell your books

  • network with local authors and publishers

  • benefit from our online marketing

  • have your work displayed on a scrolling presentation screen throughout Crawley Library

The event will be promoted:

  • in the West Sussex Library Service eNewsletter, which reaches over 100,000 library customers

  • on the events list of the WSCC website

  • on our Facebook page: West Sussex Libraries

  • on our Twitter page: @WSCCLibraries

  • in our dedicated Pageturners eNewsletter, circulated to hundreds of members of local reading groups

Registration for exhibitors is available now until 30th September 2018 and advance booking is essential. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so please be aware that registration may close earlier than 30th September if all spaces are filled. Please click “Register” and fill in your details to secure your table.

Once you have registered, we also ask that you send us:

  • A JPEG image of one of your book covers

  • Your name as you would like it to appear in our programme

  • A description of your writing in under 140 words

This information will be used for promotional purposes and on our scrolling presentation screen around the library.

Further information (including an FAQ) is available by contacting Kirsty Franks on kirsty.franks@westsussex.gov.uk.
