The Story Mint is a vibrant and inspirational community of writers who celebrate one another's successes. 


As a writer and reader, you will know that the world of publishing has undergone something of a revolution since the arrival of that magical thing we know as the internet. Access to reading material has never been simpler, the choice of literature has never been so vast and, for writers, it has never been so easy to share your work with an audience. But with all the advantages comes a disadvantage.

How do you find your audience and how do you make them notice your work when readers have so many choices?

This simple question is the driving force behind Breaking the Code: from published to best-selling author.

Breaking the Code: from published to best-selling author is your opportunity to mingle with writers, editors, publishers, directors and brand experts to create a sustainable writing career. 

Find full details of the exciting programme here:

Breaking the Code: from published to best-selling author is jointly (and proudly) presented by:
