Why this talk: These two new funding channels have replaced the old Grants for The Arts system, while the 'Developing your Creative Practice Fund' has been introduced to allows artists of all types to apply for funds for developing their practice in new directions (as opposed to developing projects with a strong audience emphasis).

Both CAS Associate Artists and carers for attendees with a disability can claim a free ticket. Places are limited and in high demand. FAQs   What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event? Free Parking: any of the town centre carparks are within easy walking distance (2min-5min). Parking is free in the evenings. Train: Andover Train station is a 15min walk from the venue. Train routes to Andover are either excellent or terribly round-about depending on your location - do check. Carpool: why not carpool with other artists coming from your area? You can find other artists interested in attending by joining our #CASarthour chat on Twitter on Tuesday nights or posting in the Facebook Event listing for this event. Is this venue accessible for people with disabilities? The hall is on the first floor up a flight of stairs.

THE #1 PUBLISHING EVENT FOR BUSINESS GROWTH Since starting GETPUBLISHED, we've wanted to create a one-day conference that would serve as the catalyst for savvy speakers, marketers, businesses, pastors and entrepreneurs around the world to easily build the strategies, relationships, and expertise they need to rapidly get their book published. It's called GetPublished Summit 2019, and it will bring hundreds of innovative speakers, business owners, thought leaders, and key influencers together for a one-day journey, taking you from optimizing every point of your message though the final outcome - your published book. Here’s What to Expect: You should plan on coming prepared and ready to get the full overview of the publishing world today. Our presenter, Michael Stickler, is fast paced, knowledgeable and has the first-hand experience as an author and publisher of a great variety of books. Your needs are in mind in his approach to the overall learning experience. As an entrepreneur, Mike will show you the path of taking your idea from concept to print form. But, more than that, he’ll give you tools on how to sell it to your choice audience. He makes a commitment to give you everything you need to propel your story forward. And he’ll take time to answer every question you have. Why Should You Invest the Time: Time seems to be the only finite thing in life. And we are cognizant of the fact that the investment of your time is a sacrificial one. So, we promise to baptize you with the information and every conversion point to determine the best publishing path for you.  Your Book’s Purpose Traditional v. Self-Publishing Models Unforeseen pitfalls made frequently by authors Print v. E-Book v. Audio Books Revenue Models And Much, Much, More PRESENTER Engage with industry thought-leaders who will transform the way you think about telling your story. MICHAEL STICKLER Mike is an author of over forty books and trainings, entrepreneur, radio host and a highly sought-after motivational speaker. His best-selling book, A Journey to Generosity, is widely acclaimed throughout the Christian community. He is the publisher of "Generous Living Magazine" and writes for the Christian Post, 'A Generous Life' column. He has a new book coming this fall.   He lives near Lake Tahoe, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range, with his wife, Kim, and has two grown sons, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren. ARTHUR RITTER Art Ritter graduated from the University of Minnesota – Institute of Technology as an Electrical Engineer – and Reserve Officer Training Corp student. Commissioned and married upon graduation, he and Georgia, his wife of 51 years, spent the next 26 years in U.S. Air Force life – Art flying as a navigator and electronic warfare officer (serving in both Viet Nam, Taiwan, and Korea) and stateside, in various organizational levels of the staff, mostly writing and speaking – Georgia, packing moving, and unpacking (and repeating) while raising their two daughters and creating a gift shop finally settled in the Lss Vegas valley. While in service and soon after his retirement, Art earned Masters degrees in both Public and Business Administration and upon retirement from the Air Force began a consulting practice with start-ups – for-profit and non-profit, to include churches. GetPublished Summit 2019 will be an immersive and invaluable experience taking place over one, very full, action-packed day.   Your day will be made up of engaging presentations from one of the new leaders and brightest minds in the publishing industry, each designed to take you on a step-by-step journey through every conversion point in publishing — from manuscript creation, generating traffic, to converting that traffic into leads and sales, and, ultimately, converting those sales into customers for life.
