It’s one thing to have a passion project, but when you’re not getting paid and trying to juggle other commitments, how do you keep that passion alive?
Ladies of Leisure brings together a panel of Melbourne self-publishers to get real about the trials and tribulations of putting together a publication – from contributors dropping out, to the financial realities, to handling negative feedback.
KEEP THE FIRE BURNING will be a frank discussion about some of the challenges our panelists have faced, how they have overcome them and manage to keep the ‘fire’ alive in the face of adversity.
