Wednesday 1.10 at 6pm at Arkadia: Writing for a Niche Market by Guy Windsor

Please don’t hesitate to follow us on !

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to Writing for a Niche Market by Guy Windsor on Wednesday 1.10 at 6pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11)

In this talk, Guy Windsor will discuss issues every writer must consider: self-publish or traditional publishing? ebook or hardcopy? single platform or multi-platform? and others, using data from his own experience as the author of seven books. He will also discuss the specific benefits and pitfalls of writing for a very small and very specific (hence “niche”) readership, and will answer questions on any writing-related topic, such as beating writer’s block, planning a book, productivity, and so on.


Warm regards,


Entrance is free but a donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the bookshop is suggested and would be most welcome. Arkadia wouldn’t exist without this act of generosity. If you have no loose change or coins we gladly accept payment via Visa Electron or Mastercard etc. !
