A highlight event of the Malta Book Festival 2017, A Riveting Workshop, will offer journalists and all those interested in the art of literary review the opportunity to join top UK journalists Rosie Goldsmith and Max Easterman for a workshop on book reviewing and promotion. The event will take place on the second day of the Festival, Thursday 9 November, starting 17:30 hours at M.A. Grima Hall (MCC, Valletta).
Goldsmith and Easterman, both senior BBC journalists for several decades, are well-known for their ‘riveting workshops’. These short, intense specialist workshops provide top tips, practical examples, short exercises and motivational talks aimed at helping both upcoming and professional literary journalists, editors and publishers to create riveting book reviews and riveting PR and promotion for all media outlets.
Attendance to the workshop is free but places have to be booked before. Interested members of the public can book a place by visiting our website and sending an email to [email protected] Places are limited and participation in the workshop is on a first come first served basis.
