New Publishers

New Publishers is a free programme designed to show a new generation of upcoming writers and artists what it takes to put together creative works in the exciting world of publishing.

Sponsored by Kent County Council’s Reconnect and Amazon Literary Partnership, this project opens up new avenues for Margate Bookie’s literary future.

Open to residents of the Thanet area (Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Birchington, Minster), our weekly sessions for 16 – 25 year olds will bring together the collective wisdoms and experiences of some of the top local experts in the areas of editing, proofing, and marketing and communications. We will also be compiling a ‘micro zine’, a compilation of the best piece from our three Margate Bookie Zines as a hand out at the next Bookie festival. This will include the steps we took, the strategies we used, the highs and the challenges of the Zine journey.

Each participant will also compile a weekly reflective journal of their New Publishers journey, which will be collected as evidence for sponsors and for blogs for the Margate Bookie website.

Join us as we take you on a guided tour of the Margate Bookie’s popular Zine Project, and giving you the chance to get hands on experience in being a New Publisher.
