    Do you have a story that you want to share with the world? It’s likely that there is an audience out there keen to hear your message and be enlightened (or entertained). And every manuscript that isn’t brought to life equals an opportunity lost for both the author and the reader who is looking for that right message at the right time.

    At Brisbane Self Publishing Service we think it’s a shame many aspiring authors feel daunted by the process involved in publishing their book. That’s why we have developed our unique book publication framework – The Five ‘C’s of Self Publishing; a practical, user-friendly approach which demystifies the process of publishing a book. And, to kick start this process, we are presenting this strategy in a hands-on, informative workshop – TELL YOUR STORY Self-Publishing Workshop. During the  workshop you’ll learn about all of the stages required to transform your manuscript into a printed book and/or ebook.

    WORKSHOP FEE: $46.50 (plus admin fee); Early Bird Tickets available – $42.00

    Included in the workshop registration price:

    • A PDF copy of Self Publishing Checklist: The Five ‘C’s of Self Publishing
    • 8-page printed workbook to accompany Powerpoint presentation
    • A printed information sheet on standard industry book trim sizes
    • Morning tea provided

    Cirque Africa is considered to be a jawdropping explosion of colour, culture, rhythm and showstoppers. Starring 22 performers from six African countries, its a highly visual show that will take your breath away!

    “Cirque Africa has been called the ‘Lion King on steriods’,” said director Papa Africa, aka Winston Ruddle. The Zimbabwe-born Ruddle, draws many of his talented cast from the ranks of the Hakuna Matata Acrobats trained at the school he established in Tanzania in 2003.

    The show is uplifting, celebratory and joyous. It’s also a critically acclaimed acrobatic and dance experience, born of Ruddle’s desire to celebrate Africa’s colour and people with audiences all over the world.
