If you're in, or around, the Edinburgh area on August 26th 2012, why not pop along to one of the workshops being run by the Edinburgh International Magazine Festival?
It's being run by the Scottish division of the Professional Publishers Association at the Our Dynamic Earth conference venue in Holyrood Road, Edinburgh.
Whilst much of it is only open to PPA members, there are two workshops that are open to the public, one of which is entitled: How To Get Published and runs for 90 minutes on 26th August from 16:00 to 17:30. A panel of editors will offer advice and tips about how to get published in a variety of magazines. Further information can be found here: http://www.magfest.co.uk/workshops
