Buzz Words: How Can You Build A Community Around Your Content – Sponsored by Bookswarm

What are the most effective techniques to build an audience for your work? What online and offline marketing techniques and tools work best? How can you be heard using limited budgets? Who does community building well and what can we learn from other industries?

Lysanne Currie (Journalist and Digital Strategist and Ex Group Editor and Head of Content Publishing at The Institute of Directors) will chair and her panel will include: Piers Torday (children's book author), Laura Lindsay (Director of Global Communications at Lonely Planet) and Leena Normington (Senior Media Producer at Vintage Books and the brains, voice and face of YouTube channel JustKissMyFrog)

As well as the talk, you'll also have the opportunity to network with authors, agents, publishers and suppliers to the publishing industry before and after the discussion.
