HOW TO PUBLISH MOTORING HISTORY: Saturday 11th March 2017

The Trustees of the Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust have organized a one-day conference  on Saturday 11th March 2017 at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire CV35 0BJ, to provide information and practical advice for motoring, motorcycling or commercial vehicle enthusiasts contemplating historical writing.

It will provide a unique opportunity to meet and mingle with authors and publishers and hear from historians and enthusiasts with long experience on the sometimes difficult path from idea to publication.

The attendance fee, to include tea, coffee and lunch, is £40 per person (£35 for members of the Society of Automotive Historians and Friends of the National Motor Museum).
