Do You Want To Be A Motoring Writer? A conference being organised by the Trustees of the Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust (MSMT), entitled ‘Do You Want To Be A Motoring Writer?’ is being held at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu on Saturday November 19 2011.
The Museum ran two very successful conferences on the same theme during the nineties and with so many changes having taken place more recently in the magazine and book publishing world, particularly with the addition of electronic media, the Trustees of the MSMT believe that it is time to hold another conference.
The conference is aimed at the enthusiastic motor club member interested in particular in veteran, vintage or classic cars and wants to get something more out of their hobby. The morning session will be about writing for magazines and the electronic media, whilst the afternoon will concentrate more on book writing and publishing. Speakers include. Steve Cropley, Editor in Chief of Haymarket Motoring magazines, Mark Hughes, Editorial Director, Haynes Book Publishing, Steve Redway, Editor of the TR Register club magazine TRaction, Mark Robinson, editor of Mini Magazine and Graham Robson, author of over 150 motoring books. There will be question sessions at intervals so that the audience can join in, ask questions or express opinions.
